- Now go to Health insurance premiums under the Less Common Expenses section. Note: If this is your first time entering info about your self-employment work, you’ll be asked some initial questions before coming to the expenses section. If you previously entered info on your self-employment work, you can pick up from there - just click Edit next to the type of work you entered previously, and then scroll down to the Expenses section.
Self Employed health Insurance does not go directly on Schedule C so it will not reduce your Net Profit or self employment tax.
If your health ins exceeds your net self-employment income it gets split. An amount equal to your net self-employment income goes on Form 1040 Schedule 1 line 16 and the remainder gets added in to medical expenses on Schedule A.
