Are life insurance premiums tax-deductible?

The short answer to that question is, “It depends.” If you’re a business owner, it’s possible that your life insurance premiums can be tax-deductible. Not only for you – the employer – but also for your own employees. Regardless of your situation as either the employer or the employee, you still need to consult with your tax advisor. Because I.R.S. sets certain limits, it depends how much of the premiums are tax deductible. In most cases, where life insurance policies are owned by a business, the premiums are tax-deductible. However, for individually-owned life insurance policies, the premiums are not tax-deductible.
