Unfortunately, you may not deduct the buy back on your taxes. However, if you use after tax dollars to purchase the pension, (as opposed to using say IRA funds ) then you won't pay tax on that money again once you start drawing your pension.
For more in depth information please see IRS pub 575 (https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p575.pdf) beginning on page 10 "Investment in the Contract"

Thank you for choosing justanswer.
I see you read my answer but didn't rate it.
Do you have additional questions? Is there anything else I can help you with?
Sometimes the answer you receive is not the answer you were hoping for. Please know that if there were any legal way to deduct the additional investment in your pension, it would have been my pleasure to tell you that.
