Dec. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Two new guides detailing the 2012 tax deductible limits and regulations pertaining to long-term care insurance protection have been published by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.   Over 1.2 million copies of the annually-produced guides have been used by insurance and financial professionals.

"The special rules that make long-term care insurance fully tax deductible for owners of small and mid-sized businesses, are still a well kept secret," explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the Association.  The Guide To Tax-Qualified Long-Term Care Protection explains that in 2012 individuals may each be able to deduct as much as $4,370 of the cost of long-term care insurance premiums.

"Business owners can benefit from the tax deductions with fewer rules," Slome notes.  "However, individuals should keep in mind that the deductions can become extremely meaningful especially after one retires."  That is because after retirement, incomes generally drop which results in more individuals qualifying for a deduction for health and medical expenses.  "Long term care insurance premiums are included as a health-related expense, and could therefore be deductible up to the yearly aged-based limit," Slome adds.

The Association has also published the 2012 edition of the Long-Term Care Insurance Guide For Accountants And CPAs designed to give detailed explanations of how the tax rules handle premiums for individuals, self-employed, Limited Liability Companies and C-Corporations.  "Many tax professionals welcome a single, current source of information and this is an excellent way for insurance professionals to create strategic alliances and generate ongoing prospect referrals," Slome adds.

Information regarding the guides can be obtained on the Association's website.  To view copies go to: http:www.aaltci.org/tools or call the organization for information at 818-597-3227.
