Earlier this year, Congress introduced the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act (S. 315/HR 1882). This bill would create a $500 tax credit for the purchase of a hearing aid to be used by the taxpayer or their dependent.
You can read the House version of the bill at https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/1882 . You can read the Senate version of the bill at https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/315 .
Neither the House nor Senate versions of these bills have moved in months, but if Congress is contacted by enough advocates, that may change. If you would like to share your thoughts about the bill, you can find contact information at http://fifthfreedom.org/l/findreps.
