Partnerships

On Behalf of a Partner

A Partnership that purchases Tax-Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance on behalf of a Partner may deduct the premiums paid as an ordinary business expense. This holds true for Tax-Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance purchased for the Partner's spouse or other tax dependent.

 

On Behalf of an Employee

A Partnership that purchases Tax-Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance on behalf of an Employee may deduct the premiums paid as an ordinary business expense. This holds true for Tax-Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance purchased for the Employee's spouse or other tax dependent.

 

Tax Consequences of Partnership-Paid Premiums

For the Employee
Employer-paid Long-Term Care Insurance premiums would not be included in the Employee's gross income (IRC Sec. 106)

For a Partner
The entire amount of the Tax-Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance premiums paid by the Partnership is includable in the partner's gross income. The same holds true for partnership-paid Tax-Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance premiums paid on behalf of the Partner's spouse or other tax dependents.

In this case, the partner is treated as a self-employed individual for tax purposes and the Tax-Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance premiums received would be subject to the same tax rules as apply to Sole Proprietors.
