Hearing Aid Tax Credit Legislation
Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), along with 37 original co-sponsors, introduced the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act (H.R. 1646) in the House of Representatives. This legislation provides a tax credit of up to $500 towards the purchase of a hearing aid, available once every five years. The tax credit would be available to those individuals age 55 years and older, dependents of taxpayers, or taxpayers whose adjusted gross income is below $200,000. Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) introduced the Senate version of this bill (S. 1019). This version differs from the House bill in that it extends the tax credit to all individuals with no restrictions based on age or income.
