We are going to New York from Kansas in June for surgery with Dr. Levitin. I heard from someone that I can write off my expenses for travel on my taxes. I've spend quite a bit on airfare and hotel. Does anyone have experience with this?
Thanks for the info! I'm pretty sure we would qualify, we don't make much each year and we have paid over $1000 for hotel/airfare so far. And I'm pretty sure we will be paying $3,000 out of pocket for her surgery.
SM, We are hopefully going to NY for surgery with Dr. Levitin this summer though not scheduled yet. We are coming from Ala so let us know how the surgery, hotel arrangements etc. work out if you could and any other tips.
Thanks and good luck!!
Grace- I will def post an update. I booked my hotel by central park because I thought she would like that as an activity to do the day before. And so far everyone has been super helpful getting everything set and approved.
