I work as an independent contractor. I have no employees and am not incorporated. My spouse does not do work for me.It appears that I can claim the cost of health insurance for myself and my spouse as a tax deduction, provided that the insurance plan is "established under" my business.How can I be sure that I have a plan which qualifies under this rule?Currently, my spouse and I have separate individual plans, with the same insurance provider.The provider offers either group schemes, for businesses with at least 2 employees, or individual schemes, which can cover a spouse.So, do I need simply to switch to an individual plan in my name, covering my spouse also?Can anyone clarify what the IRS might mean by "established under" a business?rog56
