Do 1 Thing Before Open Enrollment Ends

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time to Do 1 Thing.

Today, my 1 Thing is to figure out if there’s any way I can spend enough on my business in 2018 to qualify for a health insurance subsidy. (Remember: Healthcare.gov calculates subsidy eligibility for self-employed people based on gross income minus business expenses.)

I’ve started looking at these numbers, and I’ll tell you that the short answer is yes, I could spend enough on my business to get that subsidy.

The real question is whether I’ll have enough income left over for the rest of my expenses and financial goals.

What about you?
