Can you write off life insurance premiums?

Life Insurance is not tax deferred as someone mentioned erroneously here... Life insurance is a tax free benefit, so in general you cannot write it off on taxes.. And loans are also not taxable, so you can access the growth in your whole life tax free even if it grew interest (generally taxable) by utilizing a policy loan... In the case of S Corp's there are a number of allowable instances in writing off life insurance... Such as when an employer pays for life insurance as a part of a beneits package.. The business can write off those premiums.... But personally, its not the case... In general, if uncle sam can't touch the proceeds of a death benefit or tax its growth, then there is no way uncle sam will let you write those premiums off.. You have to pay taxes on those premiums in exchange for a much larger tax free benefit, or a tax free loan against what would be taxed if outright withdrawn..

Health insurance companies are so complicated and expensive that many people avoid the issue all together.

Write out a list of priorities to help you determine what is important to you in an insurance company like visiting the same doctor you always have, customer service, or premiums that won't break the bank.

That would not be a very nice thing to do, what you should do is write to your spouse and the insurance company, point out that you are now separated and indicating that you will no longer be paying for your spouses insurance after a fixed date in the future. This informs the insurance company of your intentions and allows your ex spouse to arrange their own health insurance.

Do any laws for insurance required tax return for home insurance contents in Florida?

I believe you are asking if taxes must be paid on items replaced by a home owner's insurance policy. I do not think so unless the value was more than the original. Typically, insurance companies only write home owner's policies based on current replacement value. And only up to a certain amount. If the contents of your home are equal, by today's value, the insurance company will only cover up to the limit set by the policy. IT is best to insure contents by adding at least another 25% of it's replacement value to allow for inflation. I suppose if you are willing to pay the premiums, you could insure the contents of your home for as must as you like. But getting back to your question, I do not believe that you need to pay taxes (income)on replacements. Of course, you would need to pay applicable local, state and federal sales taxes.
