Can you deduct medical costs for in vitro fertilization?

If you itemize deductions, then you can deduct a portion of these expenses. For more information, please view page 8, IRS Publication 502 for more information.

In order to benefit from itemizing, your total itemized deductions must be higher than your standard deduction. For more information about itemizing deductions and about the limit on medical expenses, please view the Turbo Tax FAQ below.
