Customer Question

I want to clarify the answers in this thread. I, too, have paid the following expenses to a DONOR AGENCY. My wife was the recipient of the donor egg. Donor fee, administrative fee, donor expenses as well as donor psychological fee, legal fee, and egg donor insurance. Am I correct, based on the information in this thread, that ALL of these expenses are deductible? Thanks, Jordan

Fertility Enhancement. You can include in medical expenses the cost of the following procedures to overcome an inability to have children.
Procedures such as in vitro fertilization (including temporary storage of eggs or sperm).
Surgery, including an operation to reverse prior surgery that prevented the person operated on from having children.
