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
