Since you did not claim it as income, you cannot claim the repayment.

Did you have to pay money back to some govt agency?

Sorry. It's a repayment from a few years ago. I don't know why I put expense. Yes, I paid the money back to the Commonwealth of my state office of inspector general. It was a Medicare repayment

The main chunk of it will be paid back in 2018, that's why I want to find out if I'm able to deduct it next year too.

Please clarify. Medicare is Federal, not State. Do you mean Medicaid (MassHealth)??

Yes. Sorry. You are right. It was Medicaid. I really appreciate all your help.

So, how may I deduct Medicaid payments on taxes if at all?
