The IRS will not refund you any more taxes than you have paid in. So if taxes were withheld from your income, file the return. Most likely your medical expenses will exceed 7.5% of your income and therefore be deductible as such on the SCH A. But you really won't know until you complete your tax return.

Ive never made enough to have to file. Well its not really necessary since ive already paid taxes on all the money ive made. This is not anything but the money i had put aside by federal government that i worked for. But my questions are im paying out so much of the little i get to medical and medicine shouldnt there be a way i can use it to help me get some back on state or federal income returns?
