Amending 2011 taxes   If you use the cash method of accounting, you generally deduct insurance premiums in the tax year you actually paid them, even if you incurred them in an earlier year. Amending 2011 taxes However, see Prepayment , later. Amending 2011 taxes Accrual method. Amending 2011 taxes   If you use an accrual method of accounting, you cannot deduct insurance premiums before the tax year in which you incur a liability for them.

Amending 2011 taxes Even though you paid the premiums for 2013, 2014, and 2015 when you signed the contract, you can only deduct the premium for 2013 on your 2013 tax return. Amending 2011 taxes You can deduct in 2014 and 2015 the premium allocable to those years. Amending 2011 taxes Dividends received.
