Re: deducting disability insurance premium via employer business expense reimbursement account

Hello. I would start by asking your employer if they would let you submit your DI premiums for reimbursement through your account.

If your employer does allow for that, please note that if you do not submit your premiums for reimbursement, you will pay those premiums with post-tax dollars, and any benefits received will be tax-free to you. If you put the premiums through the business reimbursement account, they will be paid with pre-tax dollars which would make any benefits received fully taxable.

Hopefully someone at your employer will be able to give you an answer to what on the surface seems like a simple question.
