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.
The insurance premium is the amount you pay the insurance company every month. The insurance deductible is the set amount which you pay out of pocket for repairs after you mak…e a claim. For example... you may pay $100 to the insurance company every month for the insurance policy and have a $500 deductible. If you file a claim you are expected to pay for $500 of the repairs yourself, while the insurance policy covers anything above that amount up to your max limits.
Generally, the premiums are not deductible, and benefits would not be taxable income.
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.
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.
Are COBRA premium payments for dental insurance an allowable medical expense deduction for tax purposes?
Yes. However, remember that the typical taxpayer has to reach a threshhold of about 7.5% of their adjusted gross income before they can deduct any medical expenses. Chec…k with a tax accountant for your specific situation.
NO. Life insurance premiums would NOT be deductible on your 1040 federal income tax return.
Answer If a deductible is lowered the premium usually goes up
Long term disability benefits may be a benefit of employment, or provided under an individual policy purchased by the insured. In either event, the terms of the benefit will b…e defined in the plan or policy. These include the duration of time that the insured must be out of work, due to a disabling injury contemplated by the policy, before being entitled to payments. That period of time is called the "elimination period".
Disability premiums will cost about 2-3% of your income on average. it is hard to answer with an exact number, since it depends on your age, occupation, duties, health, your c…hoice of long term or short term benefits, etc. 2-3% of income is the accepted average premium cost in disability insurance. The rates can greatly vary from company to company and your age and health are important factors. Also, if you apply for additional riders (benefits) rates can vary even more. I would request a quote that includes ALL riders with details and see what works for you! Be well.
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.
It depends on how whether your employer gave you the option. If you are buying your policy for maternity purposes you are better served paying after tax. Pre-taxing disability… premiums makes the benefit taxable. Your maternity benefit is likely to be much larger than the premium you pay. It's better to pay taxes on the smaller amount - the premium.
medicare premiums tax deductable on federal tax form

Answer Your premium usually will go down a couple of dollars if you raise the deductible. EX. My deductible was $500 for collision and I changed it to $250…. My premium went up $24 every six months. So basically your not going to save that much by increasing your deductible. Unless you have a very bad driving record.
Answer Most non-reoccuring closing costs can be deductible on your taxes. Check with your accountant or tax preparer for detailed information.
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.
