Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You can only claim what you paid for. How is your business structured? Single member LLC, corporation or sole proprietorship?
Ok. If you pay medical insurance for your employees, you can deduct it on Schedule C (employer premiums). Medical insurance you pay for yourself and your family can be deducted as above the line deduction directly on 1040. But the deduction cannot be more than net profit from your business.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
