TAX WRITE OFFIn April of 2002, the IRS designated obesity as a disease, and with that designation comes some tax deductions. Now, taxpayers can write off weight loss expenses, as long as they’re for health improvement. You may be thinking that all weight loss is for health improvement, but it goes a bit deeper than that – your doctor must recommend the weight loss as a way to counteract a medical issue, and the IRS wants to see proof.
Our program can be deducted, providing your doctor has confirmed that your current weight is a threat to your health, and has therefore ordered you to enroll in a program to treat a specific disease. Weight loss to combat high blood pressure, heart disease, bad knees and high cholesterol will get you a tax savings; losing those last ten pounds will not. Joining a weight control program simply to improve appearance, general health and sense of well-being and not under a physician’s guidance does not qualify. You can’t deduct your gym membership, home exercise equipment, diet foods, over-the-counter weight loss products, nutritional supplements or vitamins, or services that are already paid for by your insurance when you have a co-pay.
You can deduct behavioral and nutritional counseling, and fees associated with our weight loss program, in which we give you a diet and fitness plan, menus, and group support.
If you’re losing weight, you’re doing it for the health benefits, not the tax deduction. But go ahead and get documentation from your doctor. That way, you’ll have it in hand if you’re eligible for a deduction. And remember that even if your weight loss isn’t deductible, you’ll save money when you shed pounds. A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that obese patients spent an average of $1,429 more per year for their medical care than people in a normal weight range.
