Conneaut, OH asked in Tax Law, Employment Law and Federal Crimes for Ohio

Q: My husband’s employer is taxing the refund check for our medical insurance. Is this legal

My husband’s employer told us if we paid for our own insurance health insurance they would give us a refund check for the amount each month so we paid for two months in advance because the insurance company told us to the employer gave us a refund check, but they taxed it. We already paid taxes when we signed up for the health insurance, is this legal for the employer to tax a refund check after we have already paid the taxes on the insurance

A: Taxation on insurance refunds can vary depending on the specific circumstances and applicable tax laws. It's advisable to consult with a tax professional or accountant to review the details of your situation and determine whether the taxation of the refund check is in compliance with relevant tax regulations. They can provide you with guidance on how to address this matter.
