Is the cost of a nursing home stay after discharge from the hospital tax deductible?
Nursing home expenses are deductible if, as generally is the case, the reason for being in the nursing home is for medical care. In that case, the entire cost of the nursing home including costs for room and board may be tax deductible. For medical expenses to qualify as being tax deductible, they must exceed 7.5% of the person's adjusted gross income.
