People often think you can deduct medical expenses, but the deduction usually doesn’t work. Taxpayers only get the deduction if they itemize--and only 35% of the population itemizes. But it gets worse because taxpayers who do itemize can only deduct medical expenses in excess of 7.5% of their adjusted gross income (AGI). Only about a sixth of itemizers end up deducting medical expenses.
If you’re a business owner, fortunately, you can easily deduct your healthcare expenses by using tactics such as the self-employed health insurance deduction and the health savings account option. If you run a one-person business, you can even double-deduct your healthcare expenses by using S corporations or healthcare reimbursement arrangements.
