Hi I’m Dr. Arianna Papasikos and the question of the day is “Can I Claim Braces on My Taxes?”

So this can be a difficult question but overall the answer is yes you can deduct any medical expenses on your tax returns. There are a few tricky things to watch out for. It does depend on the amount of income and other factors. It would be best to talk to a tax professional about all of this. Some other ways you can find out how to have your braces be tax deductible is you can opt to have something through your work called a health savings plan or flex spending account. That way you can have money placed onto your card before taxes have been taken out and use this money to pay for your braces treatment. Thanks for watching and have a great day.
