I believe Ira was the NJ expert, right? :)

As a new resident can I get a bit more clarification on what is deductible on line 30 (medical expenses).

For those not familiar, medical paycheck deductions are not deducted from NJ wages like they are federal. That combined with a lower 2% AGI restriction (instead of a the federal 7.5% one), make it a much more commonly used line on the NJ returns.

Anyway, I know according to the NJ 1040 instructions that medical insurance premiums can be included on line 30 (less 2%), but I'm at a loss to find anything explaining in more detail what may be excluded here - other than the obvious as listed in the instructions.

My specific questions are does is include:
- medical insurance premiums? (pretty sure yes, right?)
- dental insurance premiums?
- FSA contributions?

Although if there was some general guide that would answer future questions too, that would be great! :)
