Tax Expert Noel Spencer: Health Insurance Deduction Pre-Tax Dollars

Noel Spencer

Can an employee claim a medical deduction for health insurance premiums paid through a pre-tax plan?
No, any amounts paid with pre-tax dollars are not deductible by the taxpayer. The tax benefit is received because the wages were excluded from taxable income altogether.
