Where do I put mileage for medical expenses

If you had to travel at least 80 kilometres (one way) from your home to get medical services, you may be able to claim accommodation, meal, and parking expenses in addition to your transportation expenses (only 40 KM) as medical expenses. This may include travelling outside Canada.

Meal and vehicle expenses

You can choose to use the detailed or simplified method for calculating meal and vehicle expenses. If you use the detailed method, you have to keep all receipts and records for your 12-month period.

If you choose the simplified method, claim in Canadian or US funds a flat rate of $17/meal, to a maximum of $51/day (sales tax included) per person, without receipts. Although you do not need to keep detailed receipts for actual expenses if you choose to use this method, we may still ask you to provide some documentation to support your claim

You can make your entries under the "Deductions" tab > "Medical Expense" and enter the amount with the description "Medical Travel".
