I put medical expenses which occurred from 2014-6 to 2015-5. Can I added the premium for the health plan there?

I put medical expenses which occurred from 2014-6 to 2015-5 including the health care premium I paid during that period. Now I realized that turbo tax automatically added the amount in T4 #85 which is the premium deducted from my pay during 2015. So the premium is double reported. I think I should amend 2015 tax return by removing the amount in T4 #85 from the medical expenses. Am I right?

Answer

Hi

You are correct, you should file an adjustment.

The amount in Box 85 must stay as is, CRA has a copy of that.  The amount to amend/remove is the amount manually entered under medical expenses.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
