I need to file current and back taxes for someone who
I need to file current and back taxes for someone who experienced a catastrophic accident in 2011 and incurred some pretty high medical expenses (over 200k) since then. Specifically, I have three years of back taxes (2014, 2015, and 2016) to file and 2017 taxes. I did not worry much about 2014 & 2015 taxes being overdue because, given the high amount of medical expenses paid to health care facilities, I knew a refund was due for 2014 and 2015. However, 2016 is not as straight forward because those expense were for home health care. In addition, in 2017, a settlement was received, and my understanding is that the full amounts that were already deducted for medical expenses in 2012 and 2013 must now be included as income on this years taxes since there is no allocation for the settlement. Here's what is unclear to me: (1) when the back taxes for 2014 and 2015 are filed, can the medical expenses still be deducted for those years since the settlement wasn't received until 2017, as that would ensure a refund would be due for those years and penalties could be avoided? (2) Even if some of the home health expenses can't be deducted for 2016 and taxes are owed, if refunds are due from 2014 and 2015, would that reduce the amount considered overdue for 2016, thereby reducing the amount on which penalties are calculated? (3) Assuming 1 and 2 above are possible, must the entire amount deducted for medical expenses from 2012 - 2016 be included as income on 2017? Note: By "entire amount," I'm referring specifically to medical expenses related to the settlement, I'm assuming other medical expenses that aren't related to the accident do not need to be repaid. Please correct me if I am wrong. … read more
