Educators in the United States are eligible to deduct unreimbursed expenses for personal protective equipment (PPE) related to COVID-19. This includes items such as masks, sanitizer, hand soap, hand sanitizer, disposable gloves, tape or paint to guide social distancing, physical barriers such as plexiglass, and air purifiers. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced that these items can be treated as a tax-deductible medical expense. At Francis Plumbing and Heating, we understand the importance of having clean air in your home. We are your air conditioning experts and your home's indoor air quality guide for healthier living.
We can help you find the right air purifier for your home and provide advice on how to maintain it for optimal performance. When it comes to tax deductions, it is important to keep track of all your expenses related to COVID-19 protection. This includes any costs associated with purchasing an air purifier. Make sure to keep all receipts and invoices related to the purchase of the air purifier so that you can include them in your tax return.
It is also important to note that not all air purifiers are eligible for a tax deduction. The IRS has specific guidelines on what qualifies as a medical expense. Generally speaking, the air purifier must be used for medical purposes in order to be eligible for a deduction. If you are an educator and have purchased an air purifier for use in your classroom or other educational setting, you may be able to deduct the cost of the air purifier on your taxes.
However, it is important to consult with a tax professional before making any decisions about deductions. At Francis Plumbing and Heating, we are here to help you find the right air purifier for your home and provide advice on how to maintain it for optimal performance.
