Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act
On November 13, 2013, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) introduced S. 1694, the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act. This legislation provides a tax credit of up to $500 per device toward the purchase of a hearing aid, available once every five years.
The American Academy of Audiology enthusiastically supports this measure and will continue efforts to assist in passage of the legislation. You can help to gain support for this initiative by visiting the Legislative Action Center on the Academy’s Web site. Here you can locate your member of Congress and send an editable form letter urging support for S. 1694.
