Qualified Medical Expense
The Internal Revenue Service Publication 502, “Medical and Dental Expenses,” does not list radon testing and mitigation among the medical expenses that can be claimed on Schedule A (Form 1040) when figuring out and reporting the deduction on your tax return.
The definition of “medical expenses” provided in IRS Publication 502 is copied below:
“Medical expenses are the costs of diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of diseases, and the costs for treatments affecting any part or function of the body. These expenses include payments for legal medical services rendered by physicians, surgeons, dentists, and other medical practitioners. They include the costs of equipment, supplies, and diagnostic devices needed for these purposes.
