I’m divorced and I pay alimony to my ex-spouse. Should I deduct that from my income in determining my eligibility for subsidies?

Yes. You deduct alimony that you pay from gross income to determine adjusted gross income. It will be excluded from income in determining your eligibility for premium tax credit and cost-sharing reductions.
