What is the cost sharing standard?

The cost sharing standard applies if you share a home with one or more adults over age 27. In that case, we adjust the exemption calculation. This is because several people share the costs of the household.

We count the number of persons age 27 or older. The nature of your relation with them is irrelevant. As is their income.

Only students and boarders officially paying rent are not factored in.
