If you itemize medical expenses on your income taxes, you may be able to deduct the costs of tutoring at Syllables.
According to IRS Publication 502, “You can include in medical expenses fees you pay on a doctor’s recommendation for a child’s tutoring by a teacher who is specially trained and qualified to work with children who have learning disabilities caused by mental or physical impairments…” (page 13). The cost of transportation to and from Syllables may also be included. Check with your tax advisor to determine your eligibility.
Some healthcare flexible spending accounts also allow you to pay for tutoring with pre-tax dollars. Contact your plan administrator to see if you qualify.
