Gluten Free Tax Deductions

Its a little tricky, but A Gluten Free Guide has highlighted the ins and out of claiming gluten-free products and substitutes as medical expenses for Federal Taxes (in the U.S.).

I personally have never done it because you have to keep all of your receipts and do a bunch of math: you have to deduct the price of a "normal" product from the price of a gluten free one and the remaining cost is what you can deduct. Your claim also has to hit a certain percentage of your income, which was high enough that I just never bothered.

That said, if your entire house is gluten-free or you buy a lot of flours, packaged goods, it might be worth it.
