Health Insurance Premiums Paid for Civil Union Partners


Premiums for health insurance that an employer paid or withheld from an employee’s pay to provide coverage for the employee’s partner in a civil union are not subject to Illinois Income Tax.  For state income tax withholding purposes, employers should treat those health insurance premiums just like they would premiums paid by a married couple.
