Daughter's medical and orthodontist expenses in 2016 - how are they qualified and where do we insert them?

Enter the medical expenses on Schedule A as an itemized deduction. The total medical expenses will need to exceed 10% (7.5% for those born before 1/2/52) of your AGI to receive a benefit. You can always enter your medical expenses and TurboTax will determine if you meet the thresholds. 

To enter in your return:

  • In your open return, select My Account
  • Tools
  • Topic Search
  • Type 'medical expenses, sch a' in the box, then select GO

What kinds of medical expenses are deductible
