Taxes and Medical It’s that time of year again. Love it or hate they have to get done. If you are in middle of treatment it might be a good idea to gather all of your out of pocket medical expenses that you spent last year. There is a specific percentage of your medical expenses that you can deduct based on your income. Included in this blog is a link that redirects you to IRS. It lists all the possible items you can deduct for medical. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.
