Finally the IRS has decided to allow women to deduct both breast pumps and breast pump accessories on their taxes. Now you can use pre-tax monies, for example a flexible spending account to pay for your breast pumping gear. The IRS states that "Breast pumps and supplies that assist lactation are medical care under ยง 213(d) of the Internal Revenue Code because, like obstetric care, they are for the purpose of affecting a structure or function of the body of the lactating woman." IRS Publication 502, Medical and Dental Expenses, is being updated to include this information.
