Hearing Aid Tax Credit Reintroduced in Senate
Dean Heller (R-NV) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) recently reintroduced the Hearing Aid Tax Credit (S 315), which would provide a $500 credit per hearing aid, up to $1000 for two hearing aids, to people who need hearing aids. The bipartisan bill is unchanged from legislation in the 113th Congress when it was championed by Senators Heller and Tom Harkin of Iowa who has since retired. Unfortunately many people delay purchasing hearing aids due to the cost. This bill would help the nearly 36 million people with hearing loss who need hearing aids.
