Privacy and Security

USA.gov doesn't collect personal information when you visit our web site unless you choose to provide that information.


Information Collected and Stored Automatically

When you visit USA.gov, we may store some or all of the following: the Internet protocol address from which you access USA.gov, date and time, the name of the web site from which you linked to USA.gov, the name of the file or words you searched, items clicked on a page, and the browser and operating system used.

This information is used to measure the number of visitors to the various sections of our site and identify system performance or problem areas. We also use this information to help us develop the site, analyze patterns of usage, and to make the site more useful. This information is not used for associating search terms or patterns of site navigation with individual users. USA.gov may anonymize and provide this information to third party entities for the purposes of research analysis. We do not share or sell visitor data for the purposes of advertising, marketing, or any other commercial purpose.


Use of Persistent Cookies

Like many websites, USA.gov uses "persistent cookie" technology. A persistent cookie is a small text file that this website places on your web browser so that it can gather anonymous summary demographic information, and remember your browser when it is used to visit our site again later—kind of like cookie crumbs! (Hence the name.) These cookies uniquely identify a browser on a computer, but never a person.  In other words, if the same person uses Chrome and Internet Explorer, two unique browser cookies will be assigned, one for each browser, so that person will be counted as two different visitors because visits are based on browsers, not computers or persons. We use persistent cookies in two ways, both of which enhance your experience on USA.gov while also protecting your privacy:

  • To remember you when your browser comes back to the site, so we don't invite you to take our customer satisfaction survey every time you visit. Our customer satisfaction survey uses a persistent cookie to ensure we won’t invite you to take a customer satisfaction survey within 90 days of completing a survey on USA.gov.
  • To get aggregate metrics on site usage to understand how people are using the site and how we can make it better. We use web metrics services to track activity on USA.gov. Government agencies only ever receive traffic statistics anonymously and in the aggregate.
  • To gather anonymous summary demographic information about our visitors such as gender, age range, and areas of interest for adults over the age of 18. We do this by using Google Demographic and Interests reports. When you visit a website that has partnered with the Google Display Network, Google stores a number in your browser using a persistent cookie to remember your visits. This number uniquely identifies a web browser, not a specific person. Browsers may be associated with a demographic category, such as gender or age range, based on the sites that were visited. This demographic information is used to help us better understand our visitors' interests and needs to more effectively develop content to serve you.

Most Internet browsers automatically accept persistent cookies. Although using persistent cookies creates a much better experience for you, this site will also work without them. If you don't want to accept cookies, you can edit your browser's options to stop accepting persistent cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Here's how you can disable cookies and/or Google Demographic and Interests reports.


If You Send Us Personal Information

We do not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to your request. The only personal information that we collect is what you decide to give us by ordering publications, sending us an e-mail, or subscribing to our e-mail subscription services. If you choose to provide us with personal information — like filling out a Contact Us form, with an e-mail address and ZIP code, and submitting it to us through the website — we use that information to respond to your message, and to help get you the information you requested. Similarly, if you order a publication from us, we will collect your name, and mailing address to fulfill your order.

We only share the information you give us with another government agency if your question relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law. USA.gov never collects information or creates individual profiles for commercial marketing.


Site Security

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this government computer system employs commercial software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are used for no other purposes and are scheduled for regular destruction in accordance with National Archives and Records Administration guidelines.

You can include only the medical and dental expenses you paid this year, regardless of when the services were provided. 2014 form 1040ez If you pay medical expenses by check, the day you mail or deliver the check generally is the date of payment. 2014 form 1040ez If you use a “pay-by-phone” or “online” account to pay your medical expenses, the date reported on the statement of the financial institution showing when payment was made is the date of payment. 2014 form 1040ez If you use a credit card, include medical expenses you charge to your credit card in the year the charge is made, not when you actually pay the amount charged. 2014 form 1040ez Separate returns. 2014 form 1040ez   If you and your spouse live in a noncommunity property state and file separate returns, each of you can include only the medical expenses each actually paid. 2014 form 1040ez Any medical expenses paid out of a joint checking account in which you and your spouse have the same interest are considered to have been paid equally by each of you, unless you can show otherwise. 2014 form 1040ez Community property states. 2014 form 1040ez   If you and your spouse live in a community property state and file separate returns, or are registered domestic partners in Nevada, Washington, or California, any medical expenses paid out of community funds are divided equally. 2014 form 1040ez Each of you should include half the expenses. 2014 form 1040ez If medical expenses are paid out of the separate funds of one individual, only the individual who paid the medical expenses can include them. 2014 form 1040ez If you live in a community property state, and are not filing a joint return, see Publication 555, Community Property. 2014 form 1040ez How Much of the Expenses Can You Deduct? Generally, you can deduct on Schedule A (Form 1040) only the amount of your medical and dental expenses that is more than 10% of your AGI (7. 2014 form 1040ez 5% of your AGI if either you or your spouse is age 65 or older)(Form 1040, line 38). 2014 form 1040ez Example. 2014 form 1040ez You are unmarried and under age 65 and your AGI is $40,000, 10% of which is $4,000. 2014 form 1040ez You paid medical expenses of $2,500. 2014 form 1040ez You cannot deduct any of your medical expenses because they are not more than 10% of your AGI. 2014 form 1040ez Whose Medical Expenses Can You Include? You can generally include medical expenses you pay for yourself, as well as those you pay for someone who was your spouse or your dependent either when the services were provided or when you paid for them. 2014 form 1040ez There are different rules for decedents and for individuals who are the subject of multiple support agreements. 2014 form 1040ez See Support claimed under a multiple support agreement , later. 2014 form 1040ez Yourself You can include medical expenses you paid for yourself. 2014 form 1040ez Spouse You can include medical expenses you paid for your spouse. 2014 form 1040ez To include these expenses, you must have been married either at the time your spouse received the medical services or at the time you paid the medical expenses. 2014 form 1040ez Example 1. 2014 form 1040ez Mary received medical treatment before she married Bill. 2014 form 1040ez Bill paid for the treatment after they married. 2014 form 1040ez Bill can include these expenses in figuring his medical expense deduction even if Bill and Mary file separate returns. 2014 form 1040ez If Mary had paid the expenses, Bill could not include Mary's expenses in his separate return. 2014 form 1040ez Mary would include the amounts she paid during the year in her separate return. 2014 form 1040ez If they filed a joint return, the medical expenses both paid during the year would be used to figure their medical expense deduction. 2014 form 1040ez Example 2. 2014 form 1040ez This year, John paid medical expenses for his wife Louise, who died last year. 2014 form 1040ez John married Belle this year and they file a joint return. 2014 form 1040ez Because John was married to Louise when she received the medical services, he can include those expenses in figuring his medical expense deduction for this year. 2014 form 1040ez Dependent You can include medical expenses you paid for your dependent. 2014 form 1040ez For you to include these expenses, the person must have been your dependent either at the time the medical services were provided or at the time you paid the expenses. 2014 form 1040ez A person generally qualifies as your dependent for purposes of the medical expense deduction if both of the following requirements are met. 2014 form 1040ez The person was a qualifying child (defined later) or a qualifying relative (defined later), and The person was a U. 2014 form 1040ez S. 2014 form 1040ez citizen or national, or a resident of the United States, Canada, or Mexico. 2014 form 1040ez If your qualifying child was adopted, see Exception for adopted child , next.

a joint return for 2013, or You, or your spouse if filing jointly, could be claimed as a dependent on someone else's 2013 return. 2014 form 1040ez Exception for adopted child. 2014 form 1040ez   If you are a U. 2014 form 1040ez S. 2014 form 1040ez citizen or U. 2014 form 1040ez S. 2014 form 1040ez national and your adopted child lived with you as a member of your household for 2013, that child does not have to be a U. 2014 form 1040ez S. 2014 form 1040ez citizen or national or a resident of the United States, Canada, or Mexico. 2014 form 1040ez Qualifying Child A qualifying child is a child

filing jointly), or Any age and permanently and totally disabled, Lived with you for more than half of 2013, Did not provide over half of his or her own support for 2013, and Did not file a joint return, or, if he or she did, it was only to claim a refund. 2014 form 1040ez Adopted child. 2014 form 1040ez   A legally adopted child is treated as your own child. 2014 form 1040ez This includes a child lawfully placed with you for legal adoption. 2014 form 1040ez   You can include medical expenses that you paid for a child before adoption if the child qualified as your dependent when the medical services were provided or when the expenses were paid. 2014 form 1040ez   If you pay back an adoption agency or other persons for medical expenses they paid under an agreement with you, you are treated as having paid those expenses provided you clearly substantiate that the payment is directly attributable to the medical care of the child. 2014 form 1040ez   But if you pay the agency or other person for medical care that was provided and paid for before adoption negotiations began, you cannot include them as medical expenses. 2014 form 1040ez    You may be able to take an adoption credit for other expenses related to an adoption. 2014 form 1040ez See the Instructions for Form 8839, Qualified Adoption Expenses, for more information. 2014 form 1040ez Child of divorced or separated parents. 2014 form 1040ez   For purposes of the medical and dental expenses deduction, a child of divorced or separated parents can be treated as a dependent of both parents. 2014 form 1040ez Each parent can include the medical expenses he or she pays for the child, even if the other parent claims the child's dependency exemption, if: The child is in the custody of one or both parents for more than half the year, The child receives over half of his or her support during the year from his or her parents, and The child's parents: Are divorced or legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, Are separated under a written separation agreement, or Live apart at all times during the last 6 months of the year. 2014 form 1040ez This does not apply if the child's exemption is being claimed under a multiple support agreement (discussed later). 2014 form 1040ez Qualifying Relative A qualifying relative is a person: Who is your: Son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them (for example, your grandchild), Brother, sister, half brother, half sister, or a son or daughter of either of them, Father, mother, or an ancestor or sibling of either of them (for example, your grandmother, grandfather, aunt, or uncle), Stepbrother, stepsister, stepfather, stepmother, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law, or Any other person (other than your spouse) who lived with you all year as a member of your household if your relationship did not violate local law, Who was not a qualifying child (see Qualifying Child earlier) of any other person for 2013, and For whom you provided over half of the support in 2013. 2014 form 1040ez But see Child of divorced or separated parents , earlier, and Support claimed under a multiple support agreement, next. 2014 form 1040ez Support claimed under a multiple support agreement. 2014 form 1040ez   If you are considered to have provided more than half of a qualifying relative's support under a multiple support agreement, you can include medical expenses you pay for that person. 2014 form 1040ez A multiple support agreement is used when two or more people provide more than half of a person's support, but no one alone provides more than half. 2014 form 1040ez   Any medical expenses paid by others who joined you in the agreement cannot be included as medical expenses by anyone. 2014 form 1040ez However, you can include the entire unreimbursed amount you paid for medical expenses. 2014 form 1040ez Example. 2014 form 1040ez You and your three brothers each provide one-fourth of your mother's total support. 2014 form 1040ez Under a multiple support agreement, you treat your mother as your dependent. 2014 form 1040ez You paid all of her medical expenses. 2014 form 1040ez Your brothers reimbursed you for three-fourths of these expenses. 2014 form 1040ez In figuring your medical expense deduction, you can include only one-fourth of your mother's medical expenses. 2014 form 1040ez Your brothers cannot include any part of the expenses. 2014 form 1040ez However, if you and your brothers share the nonmedical support items and you separately pay all of your mother's medical expenses, you can include the unreimbursed amount you paid for her medical expenses in your medical expenses. 2014 form 1040ez Decedent Medical expenses paid before death by the decedent are included in figuring any deduction for medical and dental expenses on the decedent's final income tax return. 2014 form 1040ez This includes expenses for the decedent's spouse and dependents as well as for the decedent. 2014 form 1040ez The survivor or personal representative of a decedent can choose to treat certain expenses paid by the decedent's estate for the decedent's medical care as paid by the decedent at the time the medical services were provided. 2014 form 1040ez The expenses must be paid within the 1-year period beginning with the day after the date of death. 2014 form 1040ez If you are the survivor or personal representative making this choice, you must attach a statement to the decedent's Form 1040 (or the decedent's amended return, Form 1040X) saying that the expenses have not been and will not be claimed on the estate tax return. 2014 form 1040ez Qualified medical expenses paid before death by the decedent are not deductible if paid with a tax-free distribution from any Archer MSA, Medicare Advantage MSA, or health savings account. 2014 form 1040ez Amended returns and claims for refund are discussed in chapter 1. 2014 form 1040ez What if you pay medical expenses of a deceased spouse or dependent?   If you paid medical expenses for your deceased spouse or dependent, include them as medical expenses on your Form 1040 in the year paid, whether they are paid before or after the decedent's death. 2014 form 1040ez The expenses can be included if the person was your spouse or dependent either at the time the medical services were provided or at the time you paid the expenses. 2014 form 1040ez What Medical Expenses Are Includible? Use Table 21-1, later, as a guide to determine which medical and dental expenses you can include on Schedule A (Form 1040). 2014 form 1040ez This table does not include all possible medical expenses. 2014 form 1040ez To determine if an expense not listed can be included in figuring your medical expense deduction, see What Are Medical Expenses , earlier. 2014 form 1040ez Insurance Premiums You can

surgical services, X-rays, Prescription drugs and insulin, Dental care, Replacement of lost or damaged contact lenses, and Long-term care (subject to additional limitations). 2014 form 1040ez See Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance Contracts in Publication 502. 2014 form 1040ez If you have a policy that provides payments for other than medical care, you can include the premiums for the medical care part of the policy if the charge for the medical part is reasonable. 2014 form 1040ez The cost of the medical part must be separately stated in the insurance contract or given to you in a separate statement. 2014 form 1040ez Note. 2014 form 1040ez When figuring the amount of insurance premiums you can include in medical expenses on Schedule A, do not include any health coverage tax credit advance payments shown in box 1 of Form 1099-H, Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) Advance Payments. 2014 form 1040ez Also, do not include insurance premiums attributable to a nondependent child under age 27 if your premiums increased as a result of adding this child to your policy. 2014 form 1040ez Employer-sponsored health insurance plan. 2014 form 1040ez   Do not include in your medical and dental expenses any insurance premiums paid by an employer-sponsored health insurance plan unless the premiums are included in box 1 of your Form W-2. 2014 form 1040ez Also, do not include any

the premium conversion plan of the Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) program. 2014 form 1040ez Your share of the FEHB premium is paid by making a pre-tax reduction in your salary. 2014 form 1040ez Because you are an employee whose insurance premiums are paid with money that is never included in your gross income, you cannot deduct the premiums paid with that money. 2014 form 1040ez Long-term care services. 2014 form 1040ez   Contributions made by your employer to provide coverage for qualified long-term care services under a flexible spending or similar arrangement must be included in your income. 2014 form 1040ez This amount will be reported as wages in box 1 of your Form W-2. 2014 form 1040ez Health reimbursement arrangement (HRA). 2014 form 1040ez   If you have medical expenses that are reimbursed by a health reimbursement arrangement, you cannot include those expenses in your medical expenses. 2014 form 1040ez This is because an HRA is funded solely by the employer. 2014 form 1040ez Retired public safety officers. 2014 form 1040ez   If you are a retired public safety officer, do not include as medical expenses any health or long-term care premiums that you elected to have paid with tax-free distributions from your retirement plan. 2014 form 1040ez This applies only to distributions that would otherwise be included in income. 2014 form 1040ez Medicare A. 2014 form 1040ez   If you are covered under social security (or if you are a government employee who paid Medicare tax), you are enrolled in Medicare A. 2014 form 1040ez The payroll tax paid for Medicare A is not a medical expense. 2014 form 1040ez   If you are not covered under social security (or were not a government employee who paid Medicare tax), you can voluntarily enroll in Medicare A. 2014 form 1040ez In this situation you can include the premiums you paid for Medicare A as a medical expense. 2014 form 1040ez Medicare B. 2014 form 1040ez   Medicare B is supplemental medical insurance. 2014 form 1040ez Premiums you pay for Medicare B are a medical expense. 2014 form 1040ez Check the information you received from the Social Security Administration to find out your premium. 2014 form 1040ez Medicare D. 2014 form 1040ez    Medicare D is a voluntary prescription drug insurance program for persons with Medicare A or B. 2014 form 1040ez You can include as a medical expense premiums you pay for Medicare D. 2014 form 1040ez Prepaid insurance premiums. 2014 form 1040ez   Premiums you pay before you are age 65 for insurance for medical care for yourself, your spouse, or your dependents after you reach age 65 are medical care expenses in the year paid if they are: Payable in equal yearly installments, or more often, and Payable for at least 10 years, or until you reach age 65 (but not for less than 5 years). 2014 form 1040ez Unused sick leave used to pay premiums. 2014 form 1040ez   You must include in gross income cash payments you receive at the time of retirement for unused sick leave. 2014 form 1040ez You also must include in gross income the value of unused sick leave that, at your option, your employer applies to the cost of your continuing participation in your employer's health plan after you retire. 2014 form 1040ez You can include this cost of continuing participation in the health plan as a medical expense. 2014 form 1040ez   If you participate in a health plan where your employer automatically applies the value of unused sick leave to the cost of your continuing participation in the health plan (and you do not have the option to receive cash), do not include the value of the unused sick leave in gross income. 2014 form 1040ez You cannot include this cost of continuing participation in that health plan as a medical expense. 2014 form 1040ez Table 21-1. 2014 form 1040ez Medical and Dental Expenses Checklist. 2014 form 1040ez See Publication 502 for more information about these and other expenses. 2014
