It depends on the specific circumstances of your sober living situation and your tax jurisdiction. In general, if you are living in a sober living home as part of a treatment program for drug or alcohol addiction, you may be able to deduct some of the expenses related to your sober living as medical expenses on your tax return.
To qualify for a medical expense deduction, the expenses must be considered “necessary and reasonable” and directly related to the treatment of a medical condition. Sober living expenses may qualify if they are part of a treatment plan recommended by a healthcare provider or addiction specialist.
However, there are several factors to consider, including the specific rules and regulations of your tax jurisdiction and the specific details of your sober living arrangement. It’s always a good idea to consult with a qualified tax professional to determine whether you can deduct sober living expenses on your tax return.
