taxes and supplements

Just a quick note to let everyone know that, yes, your nutritional supplements are a medical deduction IF and ONLY IF they meet the following criteria.

• Nutritional Supplements
You cannot include in medical expenses the cost of nutritional supplements, vitamins, herbal supplements, “natural medicines,” etc. unless they are recommended by a medical practitioner as treatment for a specific medical condition diagnosed by a physician. Otherwise, these items are taken to maintain your ordinary good health, and are not for medical care.
