The medical cost are so expensive that a lot of people. Can afford to take the medicine is that the doctor did them I know people doctor says take this medicine everyday. And well it can't afford to take a video take -- a ticket every other day. A lot of times. If if these medical expenses were totally tax deductible it would it would give people a few more dollars -- level. Here's a guide says I would love to deduct child support. I have to earn 23000. Miles a year just recovered child support. Well so I don't agree with you that it's okay for you to want that but if the child live what you. You'd be spending that money on the child and then it wouldn't be. Deductible you know if if that's the case if they allow you to deduct child support the and people doing.
