I see you are referring to HIPPA from 1996. The rules
are complicated. Generally, if you feel you meet the conditions, you may be able to deduct the medical expenses
, but also remember that the expenses are deducted on Sch A which means you need to have an amount to itemize first, then it is subject to 7.5% over the adjusted gross income
. I do not know your particular situation, so I am unable to give you a yes or no answer. However, you may read more about this deduction here
, and get back to me with questions. The following are to particulars, so to speak.
In order to take advantage of deductions
• A taxpayer first must be entitled to itemize his or her deductions; and
care services and other unreimbursed medical
care expenses must exceed 7.5% of the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income.
Generally, a taxpayer can deduct the medical care expenses of his or her parent if the taxpayer provides more than 50% of the parent’s support costs.
