Hello, I don’t know if this is the right board; if not please direct to a more relevant board.My mother was a short term and is now a long term resident of a nursing home. Listening to my sister’s advice, few of her expenses are tax deductible. Recently I have heard comments from an administrative staff member that makes me question that advice. I have been talking to some of my coworkers and done some Google searches but the information is fuzzy at best.What criteria decides when a particular parts of her bills are deductible? Obviously a medical or medication bill is. And what are good references for this information?Thanks in Advance,S.J. Coleman
What criteria decides when a particular parts of her bills are deductible? The principle: medical treatment is deductible; residential expenses are not. But it's more complicated than that.Take a look at IRS Publication 502, paying special attention to the terms used in connection with long-term care. Depending on you mother's situation anywhere from little to all of her bill is deductible as a medical expense.PhilRule Your Retirement Home Fool
