Self Employed Can Deduct Medicare Premiums The IRS has changed its mind on whether self employed individuals can deduct Medicare premiums as part of their above-the-line deduction for health insurance on Form 1040. In the past, the agency said this was a no-no. This year, the agency says it's okay. If you missed the write-off on your 2010 return - or even on your 2008 or 2009 return - file an amended return to claim the break and get a tax refund for the amount you overpaid. See your tax professional for more info (Kiplinger Personal Finance Advisor).
