What's on the Menu for Cafeteria Plans?

Q. Our corporate officers are in their 60s. Can we set up a tax-free cafeteria plan that provides long-term care assistance to them? S.J.T., Atlanta

A.
No. To qualify for the tax exclusion, a cafeteria plan must offer a choice between cash and certain qualified fringe benefits. Unfortunately, the list of IRS-approved benefits for this purpose does not include any products marketed, advertised or offered as long-term care insurance. Tip: Don’t be deterred. It’s generally possible to provide company-paid long-term care insurance to select employees. The benefits will represent a tax-free fringe to those employees (assuming your business is a C corp).
