WHERE do you enter the cost of hearing aids ?

I know that aids are tax ductible but can find NO place in the medical expense deduction section that tells me WHERE in the Medical Expenses one enters the cost.

WHERE do you enter the cost of hearing aids ?

Yes, your hearing aids will be included under Medical Expenses.

To post Medical Expenses:

 

Log into TurboTax

  1. Under Federal
  2. Select Deductions & Credits
  3. Scroll down the list to Medical.
  4. Click the down arrow
  5. Choose Medical Expenses
  6. TurboTax will tell you the amount of medical expenses you need to be eligible for a deduction.
  7. It my look like you should be getting Itemized deductions based on the raw numbers,  but after crunching the numbers it may not be the best choice for you.

Here are some of the limitations to Itemized deductions

  • Medical expenses: You can only deduct the amount of your medical and dental expenses that is more than 7.5% of your AGI.
  • Mortgage Interest:  You can deduct the interest you paid during the tax year on the first $750,000 of your mortgage debt for your primary home or a second home. If you are married filing separately, the limit drops to $375,000.
  • Local Taxes: Your deduction of state and local income tax, general sales, and property taxes is limited to a combined total deduction of $10,000 ($5,000 if married filing separately).
  • Business expenses for employees is no longer allowed.
  • There may be other limitations that are not listed.
  • Finally, the total of all deductions must be greater than the Standard deduction.

The standard deduction amounts for 2023 are:

  • $27,700 – Married Filing Jointly or Qualifying Surviving Spouse 
  • $20,800 – Head of Household
  • $13,850 – Single or Married Filing Separately

For 2023, the additional standard deduction amounts for taxpayers who are 65 and older or blind are:

  • $1,850 for Single or Head of Household
  • $1,500 for married taxpayers or Qualifying Surviving Spouse
