Patient Advocates, Income Tax Deductions and Guide Dogs

Yes – it’s early in the tax season in the United States.  Some of us have probably already filed our income taxes. Some have piled up those 1099s and W-2s and are mustering up the courage to make an appointment with our tax preparers.  And others are saying, “Please don’t remind me!”

But let’s not forget – it’s tax season for our clients, too, many of whom have accumulated enough medical expenses that they may be asking whether or not they can deduct your health or patient advocacy, navigation or medical billing review services from their taxes.

Good question, right?  Have you ever thought of yourself as someone else’s tax deduction?  (Well – OK – your parents took deductions for you, but….)  That’s what we need to know….  are patient or health advocates’ or navigators’ services deductible from income taxes?

The answer is – maybe, and maybe not.  For 2011 taxes (filed in 2012) there is no real answer, but there are definite possibilities.
