Tax Deduction Consulting: Self Employed Health Insurance

Self Employed Health Insurance Deduction

Health insurance is a major problem and expense for self employed workers. The self employed health insurance deduction eases this somewhat.

Health insurance premiums paid by self employed workers for themselves, their spouses, and their dependents are deductible on line 29 of form 1040. Self employed workers include general partners in partnerships, limited partners receiving guaranteed payments, and even includes taxpayers who receive wages from S-Corporations when they own more than 2% of the stock.

It is possible to take 100% of the premiums paid for self employed health insurance as long as certain conditions are met. The total of the premiums can not exceed the profit of the business that actually pays for the insurance minus the deduction for self employed tax and also minus any payments made to a Keogh, SEP, or SIMPLE plan for that year. If the self employed tax payer is covered by any type of employer subsidized health insurance plan held by either himself or his spouse, they can not claim this deduction for self employed health insurance.
