Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
No, it will not. The IRS will treat you as married for TAX purposes. For insurance purposes, you were legally married for part of the year. Your employer should separate the taxable and nontaxable portion of you insurance on your W2. You may be able to deduct the taxable portion on your Schedule A, however because of the limitations and rules only very few taxpayers can recoup the entire amount. The employer will not refund the tax you paid.
