Can you deduct long term disability insurance premiums on taxes?
No, you cannot deduct premiums paid on disability insurance policies. Two scenarios, first if your employers pays the premiums you would receive the disbursements as taxable income. If you pay your own premiums, then you would receive the disbursements tax free. Either way, you cannot deduct on your individual income tax the premiums paid. Think about it! If your employer paid the premiums, there was no expense to you, hence no deduction!. If you paid the premiums, you do have an expense BUT you are receiving the disbursements tax free and therefore could not take a deduction!

No. That's why the proceeds aren't taxed as income. Answer Correct...premiums are taxable. Death benefits are generally not taxed as income. Also if it is permanent life insu…rance policy and has some cash value built up and you take that cash out, the amount of cash less the premiums paid into the policy ("your gain") is taxable. Additional comment: Actually, if you take your cash value out as a loan, you do not have to pay taxes on "gains" as long as the life insurance is in place, hopefully until you die.
No they are not or the death benefit would be taxable. Since you said mortgage insurance I am assuming that you mean PMI or Private mortage insurance and not mortgage lif…e insurance. Yes, mortgage insurance is tax deductible as of 2007. You can see the amount of PMI paid for the year on the final escrow statement that your mortgage lender sends you in December or January.
Answer Most non-reoccuring closing costs can be deductible on your taxes. Check with your accountant or tax preparer for detailed information.
The allowable tax deduction from your long-term care insurance premiums depends on your age. The general rule is that the maximum amount of your deductible money is higher… if you are older. Check the related link below to check the highest amounts of tax deductible money from long-term care insurance premiums for the year 2014
You can pay for your disability premiums pre-tax through payroll deduction. If you do this any benefit will be taxed as well.
Depends on how you paid the premiums. If you paid the premiums on a pretax basis, then you cannot declare the premiums. Many COBRA payments, retiree insurance payments and so …on can be deducted.
If you itemize your deductions, you pay for your health insurance yourself with after tax funds, or if you are self employed you may be able to deduct part or all of it in… 2009.
NO. Life insurance premiums would NOT be deductible on your 1040 federal income tax return.
Yes, it is. Long term care insurance premiums are tax deductible. Premium payments are considered to be medical expenses and they are deductible as long as the medical expense…s exceed 7.5% of the individual's income.
No. Also, it is probably not a good idea to try and deduct the premiums for diability or life insurance because if you deduct the premiums or if the employer pays the premiums… then any benefits are then taxable. You certainly would not want to have to pay income tax on a large life insurance benefit just because you wanted to deduct a few hundred dollars of insurance premiums.
Do Employers have the right to deduct long term disability insurance premiums off your pay cheque without your consent?
At some time you had the opportunity to choose your benefits and you signed the application for the disability insurance. If you want the insurance you will have to pay for it…. If not go to your personnel office and cancel it. You may have to wait until the renewal date if the company only lets you change benefits at certain times. The good part of you paying for the premiums of long term disability is that the benefits are not taxable if you ever get disabled. If the employer pays for the premiums or if it is paid for with before tax funds then the benefits are subject to income taxes.
Yes, If you look under your medical deductions. Any reputable company will send you a cost analysis of what you have spent in "premiums" for the year. Take this to your accoun…tant or tax prep service.
A percentage of your health insurance premiums may be used as a credit if that meet the percentage of your gross income as spelled out in the tax code. All very complicated.
The pretaxing of disability premiums is a decision made by employers when setting up Section 125 benefit plans. There are three possible configurations: pretax only, after… tax only, or employee chooses. When the premium is paid pre-tax the benefit becomes taxable when an employee is disabled. The employer and employee would both have a FICA or payroll tax obligation for the benefit paid. The insurance company may issue a 1099 statement for the benefits. There is no Ohio law changing the IRS guidelines on this topic that I am aware of.
Individual long-term disability premiums are not tax deductible, but paid with after-tax money; therefore the benefit will not be taxable. The only disability insurance premi…ums that are tax deductible are the business expense and overhead DI (BOE/DOE) and Buy-Sell DI, as well as Key-Person DI.
