Georgia 2013: Health Plan Deduction
On Georgia tax returns, taxpayers may deduct the annual premium for a highly deductible health plan if it was not deducted as an expense in their itemized deductions.
Certain Georgia customers, with highly deductible health plans, may have filed an incorrect Georgia tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
