Question
Farm Income Expense - Employee Benefit Programs

Answer

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040sf.pdf

 

Deduct contributions to employee benefit programs that aren't an incidental part of a pension or profit-sharing plan included on line 23. Examples are accident and health plans, group-term life insurance, and dependent care assistance programs. If you made contributions on your behalf as a self-employed person to a dependent care assistance program, complete Form 2441, Parts I and III, to figure your deductible contributions to that program.

Contributions you made on your behalf as a self-employed person to an accident and health plan or for group-term life insurance aren't deductible on Schedule F (Form 1040). However, you may be able to deduct on Schedule 1 (Form 1040), line 17, the amount you paid for health insurance on behalf of yourself, your spouse, and your dependent(s) even if you don't itemize your deductions. See the instructions for Schedule 1 (Form 1040), line 17, for details
