Can i deduct my monthly individual health insurance premiums being self employed

Your self-employed health insurance will not directly affect your Schedule C income. It is entered on Line 29, 1040. It has the benefit of not having to itemize to take the deduction.

To add the self-employed health insurance to your return:

  • Type self-employed health insurance deduction in the search bar.
  • Click Jump to self-employed health insurance deduction.
  • Continue the onscreen interview until you get to the Enter Your Business Expenses, choose Less common expenses, then choose Health Insurance Premiums.
