U(1)Lµ−Lτ ≡ U(1)X model is anomaly free within the Standard Model
(SM) fermion content, and can accommodate the muon (g−2) data for MZ′ ∼
O(10−100) MeV and gX ∼ (4−8)×10−4. WIMP type thermal dark matter (DM) can
be also introduced for MZ′ ∼ 2MDM, if DM pair annihilations into the SM particles
occur only through the s-channel Z′ exchange. In this work, we show that this tight
correlation between MZ′ and MDM can be completely evaded both for scalar and
fermionic DM, if we include the contributions from dark Higgs boson (H1). Dark
Higgs boson plays a crucial role in DM phenomenology, not only for generation of
dark photon mass, but also opening new channels for DM pair annihilations into
the final states involving dark Higgs boson, such as dark Higgs pair as well as Z′Z′
through dark Higgs exchange in the s-channel, and co-annihilation into Z′H1 in
case of inelastic DM. Thus dark Higgs boson will dissect the strong correlation MZ′
∼ 2MDM, and much wider mass range is allowed for U(1)X-charged complex
scalar and Dirac fermion DM, still explaining the muon (g − 2). We consider both
generic U(1)X breaking as well as U(1)X → Z2.
