IRS Reverses Decision on Breastfeeding Supplies and Health Savings Accounts

on Feb 11, 2011 in Central Texas News

After a little pressure and some breastfeeding education the IRS has reversed its decision and will now allow breastfeeding supplies to be purchased with pre tax dollars through Flexable Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts.  “Those without flexible spending accounts may deduct breast-feeding costs if expense is more than 7.5% of their adjusted gross income.  This could make a big difference for some families as these supplies are usually purchased the same year that  they have the expense of the labor making it more likely that they will reach that 7.5%.  The New York Times highlights these advantatges.

Thanks Uncle Sam!
