Married filing separately with separate property income worksheet for CA Form 3853

Level 4

Which income is to enter on Box A of Form 3853 "Health Coverage Exemption" worksheet?  Taxpayer and spouse are filing separately, and each has their own W-2s, without any joint property income...Do I enter 0 on Box A or spouse's separate income reported on her own W-2?

You would file a separate form 3853 for each client that is required to file (can't check the box, had health insurance all year. You don't consider the other spouse if they have no community income. @Just Lisa Now Maybe she can jump in and explain better
