Going Gluten-Free Could Get You A Tax Break
If a doctor advises you to remove gluten from your diet, you could get a tax deduction on the amount you spend on gluten-free foods.By Katherine Biek | March 2, 2015
Can't eat gluten? Your dietary restriction might lead to a tax break.
A tax analyst told Kiplinger, "If you are on a restricted diet for a particular disease and if you have a doctor's certification that you should be on such a diet, you can treat it as a medical expense."
So there's the caveat. You actually need to have a doctor tell you to stop eating gluten if you want the tax break. You can't simply decide you want to strip it from your diet just because.
