I can accumulate charitable milage and enter it on my tax form. How can I accumulate medical mileage and get a single figure to enter on my tax forms.

15 mile trips to the doctor add up; Quicken allows you to enter medical costs and It's deductible aids us in accumulating charitable mileage. Could you add a medical category for mileage to and from Doctors, Drug stores and other medical related costs. The medical bills are sizeable and can be tracked on Quicken but the little incidentals, like mileage and parking; are over looked and ultimately lost.

Answer

ItsDeductible is only used for Charitable contributions, and then primarily to assign values for donations of goods.

Given the large increase in the Standard deduction for 2018, fewer taxpayers will be itemizing. I personally keep a spreadsheet during the year of my unreimbursed Medical Expenses, and then just enter the total number directly in the TT program.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
