The private insurance premium (Box J Releve 1) as a medical expense is calculated correctly for the Federal return, but is calculated twice in Quebec deduction line 381.

When I include the private insurance premium (Box J of Releve 1) as a medical expense, it is calculated correctly for the Federal return. However, it gets calculated twice in Quebec deduction line 381. When I remove it as an expense, it no longer is included on the federal return, but is now correct on the Quebec.

How do I correct so that the premium is calculated for the federal return, but not counted for twice in the Quebec?

Both amounts are separately calculated in two different sections of your tax return. One is in Provincial and the other is a separate entry from a T4 box 85 for it to calculate on the Federal Return.

Box J of your Releve 1 goes to line 381 of your TP1 – Provincial Tax Return.

You would have to have a T4 box 85 amount which translates to Schedule 1 line 330 of your Federal Return.

Hello -

I'm currently working on my 2019 taxes, and I have EXACTLY the same issue as the previous customer. 

Unfortunately the answer provided by TurboTax moderator did not address the issue.

It's clear in the TurboTax software that there is a Federal & Provincial portion, as per the moderator's response. 
However, the issue lies in the fact that the Federal return requires a manual entering of the provincial plans' premiums, which then gets fed into the Provincial return. However, these same provincial plans' premiums are already captured from the Releve 1 in Box J, therefore, double-counting these premiums in the Provincial return. Can a member of the TurboTax team please re-address this question / issue?

Thank you very much.
