Insurance Question for Tom

Is AFLAC deductible for the self-employed? I currently have the Accident and Cancer plan.

Is any medical insurance deducible for the self-employed?

Thanks for your help!

Medical insurance for yourself is not deductible as a business expense, unless you set up a Section 105 medical reimbursement plan.

If you are not eligible to be covered by medical insurance through an employer, and purchase insurance on your own, the premiums would be deductible on Form 1040, line 29.
