Q. On a recent post: “Are the health care premiums taxed once we retire if we retire with law enforcement officer retirement?”
You responded: There is a $3,000 deduction available for law enforcement officers.
Where can I obtain more information about the deduction?
A. If you are a retired public safety officer, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 permits you to exclude up to $3,000 of your qualified health, accident and long-term care insurance premiums from your gross taxable income each year, as long as those premiums are deducted from your retirement annuity.
