Unfortunately, medical expenses may only be deducted in the year incurred. You may not carryover unused medical deductions.

Because it is impossible for me to identify and consider ALL the relevant facts, this advice is not intended or written to be used for the purpose of avoiding penalties, and cannot be used for that purpose.
