Paying for LASIK With Your Tax Refund
It’s that time of year again. The deadline for filing your tax return is here. Whether you filed early this year, or are one of those who waits until the absolute last minute, deciding how to best utilize your tax refund is a fun, exciting, and sometimes stressful decision.
At Woolfson Eye Institute, Dr. Woolfson fully believes that investing in yourself is one of the best investments that you will ever make.
Why you should invest your tax refund on corrective eye surgery
We hear it all the time: “I would get LASIK surgery, but I just cannot afford it.” While we offer a variety of competitive financing options to make LASIK affordable for everyone, many individuals (and maybe you fall into this category) simply will not pay for anything unless they can pay with cold, hard cash.
The great thing about spending your money on LASIK surgery as opposed to splurging on the latest tech gadget or extravagant vacation is that laser eye correction surgery will be something that will improve your quality of life forever.
Is LASIK eye surgery tax deductible?
At Woolfson Eye Institute we are eye surgeons, not tax accountants. You should always seek the advice of an experienced accountant to make sure all of your deductions are IRS compliant. That being said, according to this IRS article you may be able to deduct eye surgery expenses if you underwent the surgery in order to correct defective vision.
If you have been looking at investing in yourself and improving your life with laser vision correction surgery, then now (with your tax refund) may be the perfect time. Give us a call today in order to schedule your no-obligation, complimentary LASIK consultation today!
