HRAs/HSAs

My wife's employer (education system) has recently went to a high-deductible health insurance policy. They are making a HRA contribution of $1,750 with all funds contributed coming from her employer. With it being a single policy and 2010 IRA maximum contribution limit being $3,050 for 2010, can she set up a HSA for the remaining balance?

Medical Deductions

by Amy
(New York)

Can you claim only 2009 medical expenses, as I hadexpenses from 2008 that I did not claim? I was wondering if on my 2009 tax return if I can claim my dentist bill that I paid from 2008 and 2009.
Thanks!!


Hi Amy,

Great question, thanks. You can only claim expenses that you paid in the year that you paid them. If you had 2008 and 2009 expenses that were both paid in 2009, then you can claim them all on your 2009 tax return. If you had 2008 expenses that were paid in 2008, you cannot deduct them on your 2009 tax return. However, it may be worth it to do an amendment of your 2008 tax return to include the expenses not previously deducted.

Medical Expenses

by Tom
(London)

When claiming medical expenses on a individual tax return there is the 12 month period where you claim the expenses.Would you be able to claim for the year of 2008 instead of 2009?

I did not know that you were able to claim these expenses till now. Also can you go back years to claim expenses not claimed?

Thanks Tom


Hello Tom,

Thanks for your inquiry. You can only claim expenses in the year they were paid. However, you can go back (up to three years) and amend your 2008 tax return to include 2008 expenses not previously deducted.
