Keep track of medical and dental expenses with this work sheet. You can deduct only the amount of your medical and dental expenses that is more than 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross income. Check IRS Publication 502 to see what types of expenses can be deducted.
File this work sheet with receipts and statements detailing medical and dental expenses. Invoices should show the type of medical care received, who received it, the nature and purpose of the expense, your out-of-pocket cost and date of payment. Mileage is deductible, so if you're making lots of doctor visits and incurring big medical bills that you expect will exceed the 7.5 percent AGI threshold, keep track of that.
