The Better Hearing Institute and Hearing Industries Association have been working on a dedicated website to encourage people to contact their Representatives and Senators in support of the Hearing Aid Tax Credit (H.R. 2329/S. 1410).  The organizations report that the site, www.hearingaidtaxcredit.org, has gone live as Better Hearing and Speech Month arrives in May. The site is intended to be a quick and easy way for the hearing health community to express support for the tax credit. The site is designed to offer a simple zip code search function, draft letters, and personalized suggestions. Both the BHI and HIA characterize the site as a way to offer a unique and effective voice for the 32 million Americans with hearing loss.

HIA reports that it encourages every member to support the new site. "Only when you, your customers, and their patients utilize www.hearingaidtaxcredit.org <http://www.hearingaidtaxcredit.org/>  will its full effectiveness be realized," says a source from the organization.
