<And things like contraceptive jellies, sponges, and condom--Most I assume are purchased over the counter as a retail item. But I do believe that those can be itemized as a pre-tax medical benefit.Ya, but to clear your medical deduction requirements on the Schedule A you'd have to be Heidi Fleiss. You'd probably get investigated by the Feds, could you see it:Tax deduction:$10,230 - contraceptives>I mean on the money you have taken out of your paycheck to pay for heath expenses such as dental bills. Years ago I was told by a benefits representative (when the plan was introduced at my company) that contact lense solution is an allowable expense if you were contact lenses that are prescribed by a doctor since the solution is part of the requirements of wearing the lenses. And you don't have to buy the lense solution as a prescription just keep the receipt for reimbursements from the pretax dollars. Of course, all prescription co pays are deductable so you are getting like a 30% deduction on your copay if you do this pre-tax salary deduction.Great joke about Heidi, by the way...Michele
