I have a question about health insurance tax deductions. If I was self-employed for only a few months, can I deduct health insurance premiums I paid all year long?
Maybe. Health insurance tax deductions may be taken under certain circumstances.
You can deduct health insurance premiums that you paid as a self-employed health insurance premium only for the period you:
- Were self-employed
- Weren’t eligible for employer-subsidized health coverage through your or your spouse’s employer
You can claim the health insurance premiums you paid when you weren’t self-employed if both of these apply:
- You itemize your deductions.
- Your expenses are more than 10% of your adjusted gross income (AGI).
