Tax Advantages of Purchasing a Long-Term Care Policy
Brought to you by Mutual of Omaha
In the ongoing debate over choosing between a stand-alone long-term care insurance policy or a hybrid option, we want to draw your attention to a compelling advantage that may sway your decision—tax deductions. For businesses, especially, this can be a game-changer with the allure of tax-free benefits.
Consider the tax advantages available to business owners based on their tax structure:
For Self-Employed Business Owners (Sole Proprietor, Partnership, LLC, S Corporation):
Eligible premiums for long-term care insurance may be tax-deductible when the business purchases policies for the owner, owner’s spouse, and owner’s dependents. Additionally, actual premiums may be tax-deductible when the business extends coverage to employees, their spouses, and dependents.
For Owners of C Corporations:
C Corporations can also benefit, as actual premiums may be tax-deductible when the business purchases long-term care insurance policies for the owner, owner’s spouse, owner’s dependents, employees, as well as employees’ spouses and dependents.
Understanding these tax advantages is crucial in making an informed decision about your long-term care insurance.
