The last thing that sick, older Americans need right now is a tax hike but that’s exactly what will happen unless the Congress takes action.
A bipartisan amendment to the tax reform package bill has just been introduced which would protect older Americans from a potential tax increase in 2018. The Portman-Brown amendment would stop an increase in the income threshold over which Americans 65+ can deduct their medical expenses. Will you help us make sure that it is included in the final tax reform package?
Send a letter to your Senators today, and ask them to oppose the health tax by supporting the Portman-Brown amendment!
By taking action you will join AARP's online network and will receive urgent news and action alerts about the issues that matter the most to older Americans, as well as information about AARP activities, events, and member benefits.
