Write off you ob/gyn payments!

According to a website I read, you can claim all childbirth expenses under medical expenses. Unless someone can tell me otherwise, I am going to write off my $360/month I've been paying since fall (I have insurance; deductibles, premiums, co-pays can be written off as far as I knpw$.

I need to figure it all out! From my understanding it has to be 7.5% of adjusted income to count...?

Ah if the 7.5% is true I probably can't write off my medical expenses.... I will take it to my accountant anyways.

Here's some info http://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc502.html

You can only deduct the expenses that exceed 7.5% of your adjusted gross income.

If you have insurance make sure to check your premiums. That's what worked for us!

Last I knew it depended if the premiums were pretax or not (ours are).
