IF I PAY MEDICAL EXPENSES FOR A GRANDCHILD WHO IS NOT A DEPENDENT

This answer was rated:

IF I PAY MEDICAL EXPENSES FOR A GRANDCHILD WHO IS NOT A DEPENDENT IS IT TAX DEDUCTIBLE?

Stephanie B. :

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, unless the child was your dependent at the time the medical service was provided or when the medical expense was paid, you can not take the deduction on your income tax return.

Stephanie B. :

Please let me know if you need additional clarification.

I look forward to your response.
