Customer Question
I am due a full...
I am due a full refund this year from the IRS. I only made 7,300 and my taxable income is 0. I paid my health insurance out-of-pocket each month. I would think that I should get some kind of credit for that towards my refund.

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Out of pocket medical expenses is a deduction. You need to have a taxable income to deduct it from. Deductions will reduce your taxable income to 0 but will not generate a refund unless you had money withheld from w2 or your social security statement for instance that you will get. You would only get back what was withheld.

Unless you had the medical insurance through Obamacare (State exchange of Market place) you will not get any credits for paying medical insurance.

Sorry, if that's not the answer you were hopping for.
