If you’re covered by Medicare, you know it can be confusing. You may not know that, if you qualify, you can deduct the cost of premiums, along with other medical costs, on your tax return. But it can be tough to qualify.

Charitable Deductions

December’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act preserves the charitable deduction. But you still might find that you don’t enjoy the same tax benefits from charitable giving in 2018 as you do on your 2017 return.
