Did You Know Oregon Tax Law has changed for Seniors this year?
If you turned 62 or older by December 31, 2002 and are an Oregon resident, the Oregon medical deduction allows Seniors to add expenses they can not claim on their Federal return back in as a deduction on their Oregon return. The result is that all expenses of a medical nature, including the products from 1stSeniorCare, are deductible expenses for the 2002 tax year.
The Federal return only allows deductions for expenses that exceed 7.5% of gross income. This change in tax law will be a partial help in offsetting health care costs in our state. Because we have no sales tax, Oregon will become a great state to retire or convalesce in, due to the exceptionally low cost of quality care and this low and now reduced taxation.
