Wyftwvffl* (Ark.) Courier Newi — Monday, January 29, 1969- Pagt Thret Those Over 65 Lose Some Tax Advantage The new rules for medical deductions this year help those under 65, but they take away a tax advantage formerly enjoyed by senior citizens. For the past several years all the medical expenses of tax- cut your own taxes by Ray DeCrane payers over 65 were fully deductible without reference to the 1 per cent and 3 per cent rules. This is now changed. Regardless of age,-all taxpayers are treated alike on their medical deductions. This means that oldsters will get a medical deduction amounting to 50 per cent of their payments for health and hospital insur- nce up to $150, but to get a further medical deduction their total expenses must exceed 3 per cent of total income. The $3 monthly Medicare insurance is to be considered (or a 50 per cent deduction but the hospital insurance tax which is included as a part of the Social Security tax is not deductible. As the oldsters are, in effect, penalized by the new rules, so too are children ; who are furnishing the chief support of expense* Last year and for several prior years children could obtain a 100 per cent deduction for medical expenses paid for their parents for whom they were furnishing the chief support. Under the new rules the children supporting parents must include the parents' medical expenses with their own and subject the grand total to the accustomed 1 per cent and 3 per cent rules. The lawmakers apparently felt that the new medicare provisions of the Social Security Act now protect those over 65 from abnormal medical expenses and that they no longer need the additional advantage of a special income tax deduction.
