report the medical expense of 2020 in the current tax return


Recommended Posts

Last year, I was filing my tax return with Turbotax and I learned that I could report the medical expense of 2020 in the tax return of 2021. So I did not report the medical expense of 2020 (private health insurance) and keep it for this year. 

My question is how and where I can enter this information in my Ufile tax return filing.

Thank you!

Dance, did you find your answer?

You should be able to report 2020 expenses in 2021, as long as they are within a 12 month period which ENDS in 2021.  You need to enter the dates for the 12 months, so it will accept them.

I stopped using TT after 2018, but I always used a non-Dec. 31 year end for medical expenses.

I you have some which won't fit into 2021, you can go back and change your return for 2020, if there is enough to bother.

I just changed both 2020 and 2021 because I forgot to enter the end date, so UF defaulted to Dec. 31.  I was able to change it right from 'My Account' on the CRA website.  easy-peasy and they said it would take 2 weeks to credit the refund.
