My wife and I are going through In vitro fertilization to have a baby. We are using a donor to provide eggs for the procedure and we are paying for all donor procedures and meds etc. What is deductible? I've run into a lot of differing veiwpoints on this issue.


Expert Mark Anderson's Answer:

The prevailing view is that you can only deduct the medical expenses associated with you and your wife if you file a joint return. You could not deduct the medical expenses of the donor.
