The legislation differs from H.R. 1479, which was introduced by Congressman Tom Latham (R-IA) and Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), which would provide a tax credit of up to $500 per hearing aid every five years for parents purchasing hearing aids for their dependent children or persons over 55 years old. H.R. 1479 also includes a $200,000 annual eligibility income cap.
