Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act Introduced in Congress

Rep. Jim Ryun (R-KS) re-introduced the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act (HR 414) in the 109th Congress. The Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit would provide a tax credit of up to $500 per device, once every 5 years, toward the purchase of any hearing device that is considered a "qualified hearing aid" under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

The tax credit is not refundable and may be taken either by a parent purchasing a hearing aid for a dependent child or parent ($500 per dependent) or by an individual age 55 or older purchasing a hearing aid for themselves.

The bill provides the consumer complete freedom to purchase their preferred type of technology with no restrictions on where or from whom the device is purchased.

Encourage your Members of Congress to support this legislation and raise the visibility of hearing health care.
