How Uncle Sam Can Help Pay For Your New Smile
We know that fine dentistry requires a financial investment, and we want you to benefit at the highest level possible. Here is an example for you to consider --- Let’s say that there is an adjusted gross income (AGI) of $65,000 and a 25% tax bracket. In this situation, any dental treatment beyond 7.5% of AGI ($4875) is fully tax-deductible.
If your implant or cosmetic dentistry fee is $50,000, then $45,125 is fully tax deductible. By taking this deduction on your tax return you receive a tax refund of roughly $11,281.
A home equity loan for the full amount of treatment ($50,000) would have a payment of roughly $430 per month (assuming a 6.15% rate for 15 years). The interest on this loan would be fully tax-deductible over the loan’s life. We can recommend a mortgage leader as well.
If the tax refund was applied immediately to the loan and the loan was refinanced, the new payment would be approximately $329 with the interest portion of the loan being again tax deductible over its life.
By making the choice for fine dentistry today, not only do you get it done locking in your cost in today’s dollars (the average cost for complex dental care increases 5-7% yearly!), but the IRS benefit to you is significant from a tax standpoint. The IRS will literally give you $11,281 back on your taxes to benefit your health!
We can even recommend a tax advisor to help with this option.
