Thanks Phil, that's what I found in a couple of RevRuls this morning. Both are old but I don't see anything more recent that supercedes them
RevRul 66-80 deals with a situation where you pay to modify a vehicle, & indicates that the cost of the modifications (lifts, hand pedals, etc) are deductible as a medical expense.
RevRul 70-606 deals with the situation where you buy an already modified vehicle. Ruling there was that the increased price due to the modifications is a medical expense (i.e. a standard vehicle would cost $15,000; you pay $18,000 for the modified vehicle; the difference, $3000, is a medical expense).
Ironically, I looked in my costly research service last night for an hour & couldn't find the answer. This morning I went to my cheap service & found it in about 2 minutes. Maybe I need to toss the expensive service.
Gregg
