Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act (S. 48)
Senators Dean Heller (R-NV) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) have reintroduced the Hearing Aid Tax Credit Act (S. 48) in the 115th Congress. This legislation provides a tax credit of up to $500 towards the purchase of a hearing aid or $1,000 if two hearing aids are needed. This tax credit would be available once every five years. This legislation would be a positive first step towards improving access to hearing aid technology. The Academy will keep members updated regarding the introduction of a House companion to this bill.
