Social Security Medical Income Tax Deduction
by: Stephanie

Hello Ralph. Thank you for your question regarding if you have to report the medical insurance amount that is automatically deducted from your social security.

When you report your social security income on your income tax report, you will first enter the total social security received from box 5 and then you will enter the medical deduction on a separate line item so that it will flow through to self-employed health care or Schedule A medical deductions if applicable.
