Insurance Premiums and Your Taxes
By Taxation Solutions, Inc. on 2016-08-03
Did you know that your insurance premiums could be tax deductible? In many cases, insurance premiums are paid using pre-tax money, such as in the case of employer-sponsored health insurance plans. Insurance premiums paid with pre-tax dollars are not deductible. But insurance premiums paid for with your own money, including health insurance purchased on an exchange or even directly from the insurance company itself, are deductible.
Deductions for insurance premiums only apply to your health insurance premiums themselves, not to related insurance products such as disability insurance premiums or car insurance premiums on policies that cover injury and medical payments.
