Many small business owners are able to deduct 100% of their self-employed insurance premiums on the 1040 federal tax return (and possibly their state tax return depending on where you file your state taxes). By utilizing an HRA, small business owners are able to maximize their deduction and save much more than the standard allowance offered on Form 1040. An HRA allows small business owners to save on their federal, state and self-employment taxes by taking the deduction on their business tax return. An example would be on Schedule C line 14 where sole proprietorships take advantage of the savings provided with the HRA. Last year our clients who utilized the HRA saved an average of over $5,900 on their tax return.
