Answer

Health Insurance Premium Deductions

Part-year residents:

  • Self-employed. Enter 100% of the health insurance premiums paid by a self-employed individual while an Iowa resident.
  • Deducted through wages. Enter 100% of the health insurance premiums that were not withheld from your wages on a pretax basis while an Iowa resident.
  • Paid direct by taxpayer. Enter 100% of the health insurance premiums that you paid while an Iowa resident.

Nonresidents:

  • Self-employed. Enter 100% of the health insurance premiums paid by a self-employed individual in the ratio of Iowa self-employment income to total self-employment income.
  • Deducted through wages. Enter 100% of the health insurance premiums that were not withheld from your wages on a pretax basis in the ratio of Iowa wages to total wages.
  • Paid direct by taxpayer. Multiply the health insurance premiums that you paid by the ratio of your Iowa-source net income on line 26 of the IA 126 to total net income on line 26 of the IA 1040. For this net income calculation, do not include line 18, the health insurance deduction in the above-referenced net income amounts.
