Partnerships - Form 1065

How does a partnership deduct health insurance premiums?

A partnership that pays premiums for health insurance for its partners has a choice. It may treat the premium as a reduction in distributions to its partners or deduct the premium as an expense and charge each partner's share as a guaranteed salary payment taxable to the partner. The partner reports the guaranteed payment as non-passive income on Schedule E and 100% of the premium as an adjustment on Form 1040 line 29.
