Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Impact Movement Statement on Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
The Alzheimer’s Association and Alzheimer's Impact Movement (AIM) are deeply concerned by the removal of the medical expense deduction in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act released in the House of Representatives. Families rely on this tax deduction to offset the high costs associated with the long-term care required by Alzheimer’s and related dementia.
The Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's. For more information, visit www.alz.org.
