Are Life Insurance Premiums Tax-Deductible?

Many consumers shopping for life insurance want to know if the monthly premium is tax-deductible. However, there is not a straight-forward answer that encompasses all situations. For instance, some people get their life insurance through their employer, whereas some get it individually. The answer varies for both circumstances.

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 on 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.
