How do i determine if health ins is pre tax?

If your W2 has health insurance in box 12 DD, it's pre tax dollars.

You will not enter it in the Medical expenses section.


W-2 box 12 code DD :  this has no effect on your tax return.

DD—Cost of employer-sponsored health coverage. The amount reported with Code DD is not taxable.

Code DD in Box 12 is the cost that your employer/and/or you, paid for your Health Insurance.

It is informational but it is not included in your tax filing.  You can enter it in the W-2 Box 12 drop down menu - it is found after z.
