I am disabled and get social security although I am 56 years old. I depend on electrical devises to function ie. anelectric wheelchair, a hoyer devise to transfer from bed to chair, I have medical issues that require water daily, and I have an electric lift to get out of my house to driveway level. I live in New Hampshire where weather causes me to lose power several times a year. Most times it is for several days. Last year I was without power for 6 days on one occasion and had to stay in bed for days. My doctor has agreed to write a letter of medical necessity for me to have a generator installed. I am also looking to buy a wheelchair van before the end of the year. The wheelchair conversion is deductible as a medical expense. Can I deduct these expenses which are more than 7.5% of my income and is there a limit to how much I can deduct in a year?
