Organize Your Medical Receipts – Reduce Your Tax Preparation Fee

If your tax return preparer needs to sort and list your medical receipts, it takes a lot of time. If your preparer charges based on time, this is a costly exercise – so do it yourself. In this article, I provide you with some instructions on how to organize your receipts, including some work charts.  This is a PDF file – click here: Organization of Medical Receipts . To read the PDF file, you may need to download Adobe Reader.

In addition, I recommend you read my article “Medical Expenses and Taxes – What Can You Claim?”  This article is based on Canadian taxes, but the organizing principles work elsewhere too.

When determining your medical mileage, you many need to use an online program to calculate the distance if you do not know it, such as MapQuest.
