Writing off family medical expenses

This strategy is a little more complicated but is well worth the extra effort. To use this strategy, first you must hire a spouse or other trusted family member to work for your business; either full-time or part-time status will work. Next, you need to set up and sign a medical reimbursement plan. You may need the advice of an accountant to help you with this. This plan allows any sole proprietor to convert all family out-of-pocket medical expenses into legitimate health practice deductions. Finally, your spouse or family member pays all out-of-pocket medical expenses for the family, keeping receipts and documenting miles driven for medical purposes. At a specified time, your business reimburses your spouse or family member for these expenses and deducts them as a practice expense.
