NPC & SE health insurance deduction (1040 line 29)
This year we reported our s corp health insurance costs on our 1040 line 29, and took the deduction there. (In the past, we reported them on the 1120s).
Some NPCs (those using college board) seem to lump that amount in with all untaxed income. Some don't seem to specify, so it does not get included in the calculations.
I am trying to get a sense from NPCs of whether some of the very generous meet-full-need schools would be doable for us. This amount (~20k) really does skew results.
In practice, do most schools treat all deductible health insurance costs as income, or is some sort of allowance typically made for health insurance costs?
