This is what I could find............ The expenses that are deductible and the amount that you can deduct depend mainly on which of the following three categories you fall into: Employed, Unemployed or Self-Employed.
Medical Expenses for the Employed
If you are employed: Then you qualify for the smallest tax break, but one that can still be important if you have high medical bills.
Medical expenses that are out-of-pocket and exceed 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross income are deductible. According to USA Today, this may include: Deductibles and co-payments, Prescription drugs not covered by insurance,Travel costs
me again...So, to get an idea of what might be deductible multiply your gross income by 7.5% and any medical expense over that amount MIGHT be deductible. It would either be deducted from your income on the 1040 OR from the taxes you owe. That answer would be in the 1040 directions. cont
