Important Hearing Aid Legislation - Hearing Aid Tax Credit

Known as H.R. 414 in the congress and S. 1060 in the senate, the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act would allow persons over age 55, or parents of a hearing impaired dependent child a $500 tax credit per hearing instrument purchased, once every five years. We urge all consumers and hearing professionals to contact your congressional representative and senators in support of the bills.

The Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act would help countless Americans who need hearing instruments, but simply cannot afford them. The benefits of reducing special education costs for children, as well as injuries, psychological and mental disorders associated with hearing loss in older adults are immense.

Please feel free to use the appropriate letter for your convenience. To create the most visibility, we suggest faxing your letter. Fax numbers can also be obtained from the links below. If you do not have access to a fax machine, please feel free to e-mail or mail your letter. Thank you for your support.
