I traded over $1M in stock options last year and made over $200k. Does this qualify as self employed income (over 2,000 trades)?

I'd like to write off the increased medicare premiums as a result of my increased income from trading options.

a higher Part B or Part D premium (IRMAA) is not a business expense.

you probably won't be able to deduct it on schedule A either even if you itemize because your AGI is too high

Congratulations on profitable option trading strategy.

He may be referring to the self employed health insurance adjustment on the1040   not a Sch C expense.
