Even if you already Netfiled, you can still make an adjustment but first wait till you receive you Notice of Assessment.

For guidance please see our TurboTax article: How to Change Your Tax Return After You’ve Filed

I understand that, but when I am trying out the refile option now in turbotax (without actually wanting to submit yet) and go through the 'medical expense profile' it doesn't prompt me to choose who to claim under anymore. It seems locked, and was only available the first time doing the profile. 

How would I change this and reallocate who the medical expenses go under?

I just spent 2 hours on the phone and have probably experienced the most waste of time in my life. The "Support" tried to make it seem they understood the issue, but had no idea what is going on. She was constantly looping back thinking everything is fixed and asking me if its okay.  Ridiculous service, this is embarrassing and would advise anyone on this issue to not waste your time with TurboTax support.

Are you using TurboTax CD/Download or TurboTax Online?

@TurboTaxSusan @TurboTaxGinette Is there a solution for this? I am having the same issue through refile using turbotax online. I am unable to choose who I allocate the medical expenses claim under. It is defaulting to the higher earner and negatively impacting my tax return. As OP @bobesz mentioned, it is skipping the steps that allow that choice once you enter the new claim amount, regardless of whether it's claimed as a total or inserted each receipt individually. I have been on hold with Manesh from the help line for over 30 minutes so far and he has been unable to find a solution. Extremely frustrating and wasteful of your customers and employees time. Why are we unable to go through the deductions section step by step in REFILE?! The most frustrating thing is this is 100% a software issue and has absolutely nothing to do with taxation. I know what I want to do, the software just won't allow me to access the area to make the choice.
