Last year my daughter had work done and the dentist put a claim into the insurance company. They covered only $53.60 of the $197.00 because the limit of coverage had been reached. The rest was paid in 2018 by me so should I wait to put this amount through until my 2018 income tax?
Enter the amount you paid in 2018 on next year's return.
You can claim only eligible medical expenses on your tax return if you, or your spouse or common-law partner:
- paid for the medical expenses in any 12-month period ending in 2017
