I am self employed and get to deduct my health Ins premiums. I found out last month that they were still charging me for my youngest son although he had turned 19 and was no longer in school and therefore NOT covered. The company refunded me a portion of my payment for all of 2004 and half of 2005 to reflect this. (I didn't even ask, they just did the refund after making sure I got the letter stating the exact date when he was no longer covered.)

I mentioned to my brother (who is ALWAYS right!) that I would have to file an amended return for 2004---He said no, it's a file "as to when you get the cash back" thing.

Is he right this time? Do I add this to 2005's income? Or subtract it from this year's health ins costs? (that doesn't seem right) Or do I amend the 2004 return? (I had deducted the whole premium as I thought it only covered me!)

Thanks, CTKaren
