It would be so much simpler, to just hand the SS1099 to the tax preparer and then list the premiums paid out of pocket.

I think I love you. Will you be my client? ;-)


You'd be surprised at the number of people who think I can't add those two figures together. Of course, that's from people who could do their own return, but think the IRS is less likely to audit them if they have a CPA do it. And their return is really pretty simple - it should only take me a half hour or so. Nevermind that they had 6 jobs during the year, each with a W-2. Plus their stock account where they didn't really make any money, so do I have to report all of those stock transactions? And then have to tell me their life story, and how the IRS screwed their aunt's housekeeper's cousin's daughter's life up when the wrote a bunch of letters that she ignored.

And then their check bounces.
