The cost of your medication would only be shown as a deduction if you filed a return and itemized your deductions. It then only subtracts form your income and reduces the taxable income amount it does NOT produce a refund unfortunately.

I wish I could tell you differently but medication is not a refundable credit and there is no refund for filing your taxes based on medication costs.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
