I paid for my adult sons medically necessary rehab (doctors letter). He is independent now but could not work without it. Can I claim it as a medical expense?
My adult son needed drug and alcohol rehab which I paid for. He could not work without it and had a doctors note to get into a rehab clinic. He did not and still does not live with me but could not work any longer without the treatment. I do not know if he qualifies as a dependent or if I can claim the $15,000 in fees as medical expenses on my 2017 taxes?
