Description: Many families face tremendous costs associated with raising a child with special needs. Have ever wondered what tax deductions may be available to you? Or maybe you did not even know that you may be able to deduct some of your expenses? This special event will teach you about the potential deductibility of the most common expenses (and some less common expenses!) that affect parents of children with special needs as well as other tax treatments that might apply. This presentation will review various tax laws and regulations and explain how they may pertain to your expenses relating to raising a child with special needs such as doctor and therapist costs, special diets, supplements, and unreimbursed tuition for a therapeutic school. Not only will you leave with a list of potentially deductible expenses for your use or to share with your tax preparer, the speakers will also show you what to do with your mountain of receipts that you have accumulated all year long. They will supply you with great, practical tips on how you can organize your materials now and set up easy to use systems to make tax time less painful and to make it easier to identify your potentially deductible costs.
