Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine as Tax Deductions by Robert Vena, NJ Acupuncturist

Did you know that acupuncture is tax deductible when taken as a medical expense on Schedule A (Form 1040)?

That’s right! According to IRS Publication 502 (2013) Medical and Dental Expenses, acupuncture is includible as a medical expense and you can deduct the amount of your family’s total medical and dental expenses for the year that is more than 7.5% of your adjusted gross income.

The cost of your acupuncture sessions and all prescribed herbal medicines and supplements are tax deductible.

You can also include in your medical expenses all amounts paid for transportation primarily for, and essential to, medical care. So, transportation to your acupuncture clinic can also be included as an expense. This includes bus, train, and taxi fees as well as the transportation expenses of a parent who must go with a child who needs medical care. You can also include out-of-pocket expenses, such as the cost of gas and oil, when you use a car for medical reasons.

So, be sure to keep track of your treatments, and save your all of your related receipts for tax season.
