Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi and welcome to our site! if A is there a free place to file 2012 online?Not at this time - but you will be file with no charge in January if you file a simple tax return. B. Can i write off some medical expenses Yes - you may deduct your medical expenses - you need to itemize - and such deduction will be subject of floor limitation. But - yes - medical expenses are deductible - and you need to collect all supporting documents to calculate your total medical expenses. C. Disability, does not count as income, according to what i found - yes?In most situation - it depends on your circumstances.If that is your social security disability benefits - here is a simple test - take a half of your social security disability benefits PLUS other taxable income - if the total is less than $25,000 (for single) - none of your social security disability benefits are taxable.Let me know if you have a different type of disability benefits.
appreciate you for asking your clarification questions.
so i have to wait until 2013?Fro free e filing - yes - but if you want to pay for your tax return or you want to main a paper tax return - no need to wait - and you may file your 2012 tax return right away.my total disability was around 22k for that year, + on a w2, 21k.....In this case your social security disability benefits will be partially taxed.
I do not have my total medical amount - very hard to get, but im sure i hit the max......what is it? i'm guessing, and its pretty close, i spent about 25k on medical in 6 months. are they going to demand the docs?
You will only need to provide documents if audited.by the IRS.
But you will also need documents to calculate your medical expenses - you should not use estimations to claim deductions.
If so, they would have to talk to my former HMO, who will not deal with me now that im not a member, so i cant get a total to the.
Just do you best to collect all possible supporting documents - bank statements, canceled checks, etc - that support your medical payments.
