Considering long-term care insurance? Tax time may be a good time to move your decision to the front burner, because the premiums of many policyholders may be subsidized by tax deductions or credits.
Federal tax deduction limits range from $370 to $4,660, depending
on age. “If you get a policy now, you could start the subsidy ball
rolling for years to come,” says Kim Beckham, an LTC specialist with
ACSIA Partners, one of America’s most experienced long-term care
insurance agencies, with offices in Victoria.
Over the lifetime of many policies, “Cumulative deduction claims can amount to several thousand dollars, even up to $100,000 or more,” says Beckham.
Already have long-term care insurance?
Remember to make your claim
on this year’s return, due April 15. The states are getting into the
subsidy act, too. Already more than half offer additional incentives
for owning long-term care insurance. These usually take the form of
state tax deductions or rebates. "People can check with me for policy options and incentives
available in this area," says Beckham.
ACSIA Partners does not offer tax advice, but teams with accountants and other tax experts to help their clients get all the deductions or other benefits available to them.
