Biden dividing America with COVID vaccine mandate: Gov. Kemp
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp reacts to President Biden’s vaccine mandate for the nation’s largest employer.
The Internal Revenue Service sent out an alert Friday reminding taxpayers that home testing for COVID-19 is an eligible medical expense for health savings accounts and flexible spending arrangements, noting that the cost to diagnose the virus can be paid or reimbursed by such vehicles for tax purposes.
The agency's message came the day after President Biden announced his latest mandate for businesses with 100 employees or more to require their workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or conduct weekly tests on unvaccinated workers. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki acknowledged during a press briefing Friday that such costs could be paid by workers, but that decision would be left to individual employers. At-home coronavirus tests can costs upwards of $100.
