Exceptions for claiming non-dependent medical expenses. You can claim an exception for:

- An individual you would have been allowed to claim as a dependent except he or she received gross income of $4,150 or more in the year.

This is my situation.  Daughter lived at home, worked, and attended school, but earned more than $4150.  The only information I can find for this exception is linked to self-employment.  If not self-employed, is this exception still possible?

This exception also applies if you are not self-employed. Everybody can use this exception to claim Medical Expenses for a person who would be a dependent if he/she earned less than $4,150.

Great ... but now - How?  On which form / line does this information go?

You would deduct Medical Expenses for a non-dependent exactly as you do for Medical Expenses for yourselves and your dependents.

In TurboTax, you can enter Medical expenses by following these steps:
• In TurboTax, open your tax return
• Click on Federal in the left-hand column, then on Deductions & Credits on top of the screen
• Scroll down to All Tax breaks, locate the section Medical and click on Show more
• Click Start next to Medical Expenses.
