I am old (school) so I am usually reluctant to sign up for automatic payments for anything. There are a couple of exceptions. I change passwords and credit card numbers often enough to make it very tedious to have to remember which auto payments I'm signed up for and change them out.
So I buy my stamps, lick my envelopes, and pray that the "Mail Goes Through" on time. Even that is becoming less of a sure thing these days. Some days I don't get my mail delivered until 9 p.m.
The last time I read up on it, which admittedly was several years ago, it was considered a cosmetic procedure by the IRS. I have not heard of any change. Breast enhancement surgery for MtF and mastectomies for FtM are usually allowable deductions if one gets documentation from medical providers that it was medically necessary.
That said, the cost of medical procedures must still exceed the percentage of income (usually 7%) in order to be deducted, and finally, one must be able to itemize deductions, which is a more difficult threshold to get past than it was prior to Trump's big tax changes from a couple of years ago.
So, as usual, it depends. Please talk to your tax advisor to be sure. I am not a tax accountant, nor do I play one on T.V. 🤣
Hi Cris31, My wife and I have been married for over 40 years. I’ve wanted to be female for 70 years. I’ve cross dressed since age 6 but was never able or ready to accept myself as transgender until a few years ago. My wife tolerates my feminine side and I believe quietly accepts me.
I’m not on HRT and I don’t plan on having surgery. As of now, I’ll live out my life the way I am.
I’m sorry your wife feels the way she. Life is still good
My wife also mentioned becoming a dental hygienist which I don’t see a problem with I’m just scared because wrenching is all I know. I do agree with her I should look into doing something else I just don’t know what lol. I have time I just need to start looking and figure out what I would enjoy. I’m kind of burnt out on being a mechanic and that was pretty much my fault because my way of coping before was drowning myself in work and now I’m at a point I don’t enjoy it.
My wife has known of my preference in underwear. She has told me she was surprised when we got married that she never found tighty whitys or boxers in the wash. She says she was shocked the first time she saw me in a thong.
For the longest time she and I for that matter thought I was just a crossdresser. I finally put two and two together about 3 yrs ago. Hey idiot you aren't a crossdresser you are a girl.
It was last Halloween when she first saw me dressed.First time for me going out dressed too. OH, god. the blow up that happened. WWIII has nothing on this.
Definitely know what you mean by imposter syndrome. I woke up feeling very unsure, and I'm sure I will feel that way for some time. But I put on three of my mom's sports bras (temporarily), pants from my male best friend, a t shirt, and I stood in the mirror like a guy with my hands in my pockets. I felt really good looking and confident. I'm taking it one day at a time for the future, but it feels I've finally unlocked the first step of *something*.
