I was watching the local news and I heard mention of this case where a Transwomen deducted her medical costs on her tax return and the IRS declined her. She is now suing the IRS claiming that it is a medically necessary treatment. Obviously dealing with this myself I not only support her but believe the same thing. It is beyond belief that most insurance companies will not pay for this and it becomes out of pocket but after THAT out of pocket the IRS says you can't deduct the medical costs... WTF? Seems to be bias either way.


If she wins this federal case I wonder if this could set precedent for insurance companies to have to cover costs. At any rate I'll be watching this one closely.
