How to claim and benefit from special foods tax breaks

Tax season is approaching. A fellow FPIES family has shared this wonderful resource for some important information that may be helpful to your family. 

"The IRS extends a tax relief in cases of food allergies. The tax man will allow you a tax break if you prove that you are usually propelled to purchase special foods to contain your diet under certain conditions.
To benefit from this tax break, there is a criterion that you must meet before incorporating the special food costs as part of your medical expenses."
