  • Tax Deductibility of Long Term Care Insurance
  • Long Term Care Insurance (LTCi) • LTCi is a retirement planning tool used to protect your assets from the high cost of needing long term care • Examples of long term care services are home health care, assisted living, hospice, adult day care, or nursing homes
  • Two Options • LTCi policies are either IRS tax-qualified or non-tax- qualified • One way to deduct your LTCi premiums is by owning a HSA
  • How They Are Deducted • Tax-qualified long term care premiums are considered a medical expense • Medical expenses are deductible for an individual who itemizes tax deductions
  • Aging • As you age, your tax deductible limit increases • By the time you are over 70 you can deduct $4,550
  • Individual Deduction • Considered a medical expense and can be deducted if you itemize • Deduction increases with age and becomes more meaningful
  • Self-Employed Deduction • Great deduction for self- employed because it comes off the top of your income • Can include eligible premiums paid for your spouse and dependents too
  • C Corporation Deduction • A C corporation gives the greatest tax deduction • You can deduct 100 percent of the LTC premiums
  • State Income Tax Credits • Half of the states offer some form of tax credit • Some range as high as 25 percent of the total premiums paid
  • Disclaimer • This is NOT tax advice in anyway and should be used only as general information. Please consult with your tax pro and or the IRS for more information.
