Is it okay to enter a total for dental or prescription payments for a payee, rather than enter every separate payment? E.g. enter total of copays by my wife for dental.

This would mean entering 4 items rather than 50.  I can defend this under an audit, but would it draw attention to my return?

It is perfectly fine to group your medical expenses as long as you make sure to keep all your receipts and perhaps an itemized list of the medical expenses totaled and matching the receipts. If ever proof of these was ever requested by the Canada Revenue Agency you are already ready to send it to them.

 

Thank you for using TurboTax.
