Is surgical removal of a very large dermatofibroma from lower leg deductible? It was starting to cause pain.

If you had to pay anything out of pocket for the surgery, you can list it as a medical expense. Here are the steps for entering medical expenses:

Medical, dental, and vision expenses are reported on Schedule A and entered in the Deductions & Credits section:

  1. Open your tax return.
    (To do this, sign in to TurboTax and click the orange Take me to my return button.)
  2. Search for Schedule A and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
  3. Answer Yes on the Did you have any medical expenses in 2016? screen.
  4. You will then be prompted to enter your medical expenses, starting with prescriptions.

If you're using Federal Free Edition or Basic and your medical expenses are large enough that you would benefit from itemizing deductions, you'll be prompted to upgrade to Deluxe, as the Federal Free and Basic versions do not handle Schedule A.
