Good luck with that. My GI doc told me both people he wrote a medical note for were audited.
Sudden additions such as these are big red flags.
You have to have a huge amount in medical expenses, coupled with the cost of gluten-free food, and show the difference per item for every single
thing you buy. And if there are people in the home consuming the gluten-free items (sharing a pot of pasta for example), and they are NOT DXED celiacs, then you cannot deduct them
Believe me we all looked into it.
And I kept every stub and receipt during year one and by the time we added up the difference between the cost per ounce of gluten-free pasta vs. wheat pasta, etc etc....it was not worth it. We could have claimed practically NOTHING.
Unless you have major medical deductions, it will not make a dent.
If you want to try it, go ahead, but the itemization of it...is absurd. Not worth it.
