No, but looking forward to receiving that new 20% pass through business deduction that can take some of the sting out of our health insurance premiums from the UNaffordable Care Act. 

For tax year 2017 our health insurance premiums totaled $22,250 for the two of us, so this new deduction will really help!!!
