What is the tax structure of your business?
(1) Sole Proprietors, Partners, and S Corporation Principles generally qualify to deduct health insurance premiums as an adjustment to gross income on their personal income tax returns. Under an HRA plan, by converting premiums to a business expense, you exclude premiums from Social Security and Medicare taxes.
If you are a sole proprietor OR own 2% or more in stock of an S Corporation and are an employee...Do you or your spouse qualify to participate in an employer paid medical insurance plan?
Regardless of whether you choose to participate or not, if you answer YES to the above question, you may not qualify to deduct your insurance premiums on your federal 1040 tax return as an adjustment for self-employed health insurance but you still qualify to take the premium deduction on Schedule A if you itemize deductions.
(2) Out of pocket expenses include all qualified medical expenses not reimbursed under insurance coverage. This includes doctor office co-pays, prescription drugs, eye care, dental, and other medical costs as approved under IRS regulations. For a list of expenses allowed by IRS rules refer to Publication 502 Medical and Dental Expenses at www.IRS.Gov.
(**) 2% or more owners and spouses of an S Corporation are not exempt from income taxes on our of pocket expenses.
The above calculations do not take into consideration the tax effect of being able to take deductions on your personal 1040 tax return versus an HRA plan if your medical expenses exceed the AGI IRS rule.
If your taxable business profit exceeds the FICA tax base limit, special tax considerations apply and you should speak with a tax professional to determine the benefits of an HRA 105 plan.
The examples and amounts of potential savings are of a general nature and may not apply to your particular situation. For specific tax advice, please consult your tax professional.
