Hey does anyone know if you can include vitamins and other supplements as part of your medical expense when you itemize health costs on your tax return? I am assuming yes to at least a point, i..e if a doc prescribes you something like a b12 shot and yr ins. didnt pay I would assume you could itemize that---but how far can we take it? does there have to be an official prescription for it or just a suggestion from a health care provider? could a person list their multivitamin etc and how about stuff like water filters for our water pitcher? I personally feel we should be able to but am not sure if there are hard and fast rules on it. (If we are chemically sensitive it can be expensive to proactively care for oneself with air and water filters etc ).
