AC – Air Conditioning for medical tax write off:

Did you know that your Air Conditioner and air purifier may qualify for tax refunds as a medical expense?

Medical Expense Tax Break Air ConditionerIt’s true! If you suffer with asthma, allergies, or any other health issue that would benefit from cleaner air or more controlled temperature settings you can claim up to $1,000 of your cost of a new air conditioner (AC) as a medical expense.

To qualify you do need a prescription written by your doctor – I know it may seem odd to ask for a prescription for a new cleaner air conditioning system but it is worth the effort to ask. After all it means cleaner air in your home, better health for your family, and the added bonus of getting that $1,000 tax break at a time when prices continue to rise.
