Need to file my 2012 taxes Cada uno de ustedes debería incluir la mitad de los gastos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si los gastos médicos se pagan de los fondos separados de un cónyuge, sólo el cónyuge que pagó los gastos médicos puede incluirlos.

Need to file my 2012 taxes Ejemplo. Need to file my 2012 taxes Usted no está casado, es menor de 65 años de edad y su ingreso bruto ajustado es $40,000.

Need to file my 2012 taxes No puede deducir ningunos de sus gastos médicos porque éstos no son mayores que el 10% de su ingreso bruto ajustado. Need to file my 2012 taxes ¿De Qué Personas Puede Incluir Gastos Médicos? Normalmente, puede incluir gastos médicos que pagó por usted mismo o por alguien que fuera su cónyuge o su dependiente cuando se proporcionaron los servicios o cuando usted los pagó. Need to file my 2012 taxes Hay reglas distintas para personas fallecidas y personas nombradas en acuerdos de manutención múltiple. Need to file my 2012 taxes Vea Manutención reclamada conforme a un acuerdo de manutención múltiple , más adelante. Need to file my 2012 taxes Usted Puede incluir los gastos médicos que pagó por usted mismo. Need to file my 2012 taxes Cónyuge Puede incluir los gastos médicos que pagó por su cónyuge. Need to file my 2012 taxes Para incluir estos gastos, tiene que haber estado casado en el momento en que su cónyuge recibió los servicios médicos o en el momento en que usted los pagó. Need to file my 2012 taxes Ejemplo 1. Need to file my 2012 taxes María recibió tratamiento médico antes de casarse con Guillermo. Need to file my 2012 taxes Guillermo pagó por el tratamiento después de casarse. Need to file my 2012 taxes Guillermo puede incluir estos gastos al calcular su deducción por gastos médicos aunque Guillermo y María presenten declaraciones separadas. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si María hubiera pagado los gastos, Guillermo no podría incluir los gastos de María en la declaración separada de él. Need to file my 2012 taxes María incluiría las cantidades que ella pagó a lo largo del año en su declaración separada. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si presentaran una declaración conjunta, los gastos médicos que ambos pagaron a lo largo del año se usarían para calcular la deducción de gastos médicos de ambos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Ejemplo 2. Need to file my 2012 taxes Este año, Juan pagó gastos médicos por su cónyuge Luisa, la cual murió el año pasado. Need to file my 2012 taxes Juan se casó con Beatriz este año y presentan una declaración conjunta. Need to file my 2012 taxes Debido a que Juan estaba casado con Luisa cuando ella recibió los servicios médicos, puede incluir esos gastos al calcular su deducción por gastos médicos correspondiente a este año. Need to file my 2012 taxes Dependiente Puede incluir los gastos médicos que pagó por su dependiente. Need to file my 2012 taxes Para incluir estos gastos, la persona tiene que haber sido su dependiente en el momento en que se proveyeron los servicios médicos o en el momento en que usted pagó los gastos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Generalmente, una persona puede considerarse su dependiente para propósitos de la deducción de gastos médicos si se cumplen los dos requisitos siguientes: La persona era hijo calificado (definido más adelante) o pariente calificado (definido más adelante) y La persona era ciudadana o nacional de los Estados Unidos o era residente de los Estados Unidos, Canadá o México. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si su hijo calificado fue adoptado, vea el tema que se presenta a continuación, Excepción por hijo adoptivo . Need to file my 2012 taxes Puede incluir los gastos médicos que pagó a nombre de una persona que hubiera sido su dependiente, salvo que: Dicha persona recibió ingresos brutos de $3,900 o más en 2013, Dicha persona presentó una declaración conjunta para el año 2013 o Usted, o su cónyuge si presentan una declaración conjunta, puede ser reclamado como dependiente en la declaración de 2013 de otra persona. Need to file my 2012 taxes Excepción por hijo adoptivo. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si usted es ciudadano o nacional estadounidense y su hijo adoptivo vivió con usted como miembro de su unidad familiar durante el año 2013, dicho hijo no tiene que ser ciudadano o nacional estadounidense ni ser residente de los Estados Unidos, Canadá o México. Need to file my 2012 taxes Hijo Calificado Un hijo calificado es un hijo que: Es su hijo o hija, hijastro o hijastra, hijo de crianza, hermano o hermana, hermanastro o hermanastra, medio hermano o media hermana o descendiente de cualquiera de ellos (por ejemplo, su nieto, sobrino o sobrina), Tenía: Menos de 19 años de edad al final del año 2013 y era menor que usted (o su cónyuge, si presenta una declaración conjunta), Menos de 24 años de edad al final del año 2013, era estudiante de tiempo completo y menor que usted (o su cónyuge, si presenta una declaración conjunta) o Cualquier edad y estaba total y permanentemente incapacitado, Vivió con usted por más de la mitad del año 2013, No proveyó más de la mitad de su propia manutención durante el año 2013 y No presentó una declaración conjunta, a menos que la haya presentado únicamente para reclamar un reembolso. Need to file my 2012 taxes Hijo adoptivo. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Un hijo legalmente adoptado se considera su propio hijo. Need to file my 2012 taxes Esto incluye a un hijo colocado legalmente bajo su cargo para adopción legal. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Puede incluir los gastos médicos que pagó por un hijo antes de la adopción si el hijo reunía los requisitos para ser su dependiente cuando se proveyeron los servicios médicos o cuando se pagaron los gastos. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si reintegra a una agencia de adopciones o a otras personas los gastos médicos que ellas pagaron bajo un acuerdo con usted, es como si usted hubiera pagado dichos gastos con tal de que demuestre claramente que el pago es directamente atribuible al cuidado médico del hijo. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Pero si usted paga a la agencia o a otra persona el cuidado médico que fue provisto y pagado antes de que empezaran las negociaciones de adopción, no los puede incluir como gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes    Tal vez pueda tomar un crédito por otros gastos relacionados con la adopción. Need to file my 2012 taxes Vea las Instrucciones para el Formulario 8839, Qualified Adoption Expenses (Gastos calificados de adopciones), en inglés, para más información. Need to file my 2012 taxes Hijo de padres divorciados o separados. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Para propósitos de la deducción de gastos médicos y dentales, un hijo de padres divorciados o separados puede considerarse dependiente de ambos padres. Need to file my 2012 taxes Cada padre puede incluir los gastos médicos que él o ella pague por el hijo, aunque el otro padre declare la exención de dependencia del hijo, si: El hijo queda bajo la custodia de uno o ambos padres por más de la mitad del año, El hijo recibe más de la mitad de su manutención durante el año de sus padres y Los padres del hijo: Están divorciados o legalmente separados bajo un fallo de divorcio o de manutención por separación judicial, Están separados bajo un acuerdo de separación judicial escrito o Viven separados en todo momento durante los últimos 6 meses del año. Need to file my 2012 taxes Esto no corresponde si la exención del hijo se reclama conforme a un acuerdo de manutención múltiple (explicado más adelante). Need to file my 2012 taxes Pariente Calificado Un pariente calificado es una persona: Que es su: Hijo o hija, hijastro o hijastra, hijo de crianza o descendiente de cualquiera de ellos (por ejemplo, su nieto), Hermano o hermana, medio hermano o media hermana o un hijo de cualquiera de ellos, Padre, madre o antecesor o hermano o hermana de cualquiera de ellos (por ejemplo, su abuelo o abuela, o tío o tía), Hermanastro o hermanastra, padrastro, madrastra, yerno, nuera, suegro o suegra, cuñado o cuñada o Cualquier otra persona (que no sea su cónyuge) que haya vivido con usted durante todo el año como integrante de su unidad familiar si su relación no violó la ley local, Quien no era hijo calificado (vea Hijo Calificado , anteriormente) de cualquier otra persona para el año 2013 y Para la cual usted proveyó más de la mitad de la manutención del año 2013. Need to file my 2012 taxes Pero vea Hijo de padres divorciados o separados , anteriormente, y Manutención reclamada conforme a un acuerdo de manutención múltiple, que aparece a continuación. Need to file my 2012 taxes Manutención reclamada conforme a un acuerdo de manutención múltiple. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si se considera que usted proveyó más de la mitad de la manutención de un pariente conforme a un acuerdo de manutención múltiple, puede incluir los gastos médicos que pague por dicho pariente. Need to file my 2012 taxes El acuerdo de manutención múltiple se usa cuando dos o más personas proveen más de la mitad de la manutención de una persona, pero ninguna persona sola provee más de la mitad. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Todos los demás gastos médicos pagados por otras personas que firmaron con usted el acuerdo no pueden ser incluidos como gastos médicos por nadie. Need to file my 2012 taxes Sin embargo, usted puede incluir la totalidad de la cantidad no reembolsada que usted pagó por concepto de gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Ejemplo. Need to file my 2012 taxes Usted y sus tres hermanos proveen cada uno una cuarta parte del total de la manutención de su madre. Need to file my 2012 taxes Conforme a un acuerdo de manutención múltiple, usted declara a su madre como su dependiente. Need to file my 2012 taxes Usted pagó todos sus gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Sus hermanos le reembolsaron a usted las tres cuartas partes de dichos gastos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Al calcular su deducción de gastos médicos, usted puede incluir sólo una cuarta parte de los gastos médicos de su madre. Need to file my 2012 taxes Sus hermanos no pueden incluir ninguna parte de los gastos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Sin embargo, si usted y sus hermanos comparten los gastos que no sean de manutención médica y usted paga por separado todos los gastos médicos de su madre, usted puede incluir la cantidad no reembolsada que pagó por concepto de gastos médicos en los gastos médicos de usted. Need to file my 2012 taxes Difuntos Los gastos médicos que fueron pagados por el difunto antes de que falleciera se incluyen al calcular las deducciones por gastos médicos y dentales en la declaración de impuestos final sobre el ingreso del difunto. Need to file my 2012 taxes Esto incluye gastos tanto para el cónyuge y los dependientes del difunto como para el mismo difunto. Need to file my 2012 taxes El sobreviviente o representante personal de un difunto puede optar por tratar ciertos gastos médicos del difunto pagados por el caudal hereditario del mismo como si hubieran sido pagados por el difunto en el momento en que se le proveyeron los servicios médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Los gastos se tienen que pagar dentro del plazo de 1 año a partir del día siguiente al día del fallecimiento. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si usted es el sobreviviente o representante personal que elige esta opción, tendrá que adjuntar un documento escrito al Formulario 1040 del difunto (o la declaración enmendada del difunto, Formulario 1040X) explicando que los gastos no han sido y no serán declarados en la declaración del impuesto del caudal hereditario. Need to file my 2012 taxes Los gastos médicos calificados que el difunto pagó antes de su muerte no son deducibles si fueron pagados por medio de una distribución exenta de impuestos proveniente de una cuenta Archer MSA de ahorros médicos, cuenta Medicare Advantage MSA u otra cuenta de ahorros para gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Las declaraciones enmendadas y reclamaciones de reembolsos se explican en el capítulo 1 . Need to file my 2012 taxes ¿Y si usted paga gastos médicos de un cónyuge fallecido o un dependiente fallecido?   Si usted pagó gastos médicos para su cónyuge o dependiente fallecido, inclúyalos como gastos médicos en su Formulario 1040 en el año en que fueron pagados, independientemente de si se pagan antes o después de la muerte del difunto. Need to file my 2012 taxes Los gastos pueden ser incluidos si la persona era su cónyuge o dependiente en el momento en que se proveyeron los servicios médicos o en el momento en que usted pagó los gastos. Need to file my 2012 taxes ¿Qué Gastos Médicos se Pueden Incluir? Use la Tabla 21-1, anteriormente, como guía para determinar qué gastos médicos y dentales puede incluir en el Anexo A (Formulario 1040).

Need to file my 2012 taxes Vea Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance Contracts (Contratos de seguro de cuidados a largo plazo calificados) en la Publicación 502, en inglés. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si tiene una póliza que pague por cuidados que no sean médicos, puede incluir las primas por la parte de la póliza que corresponda a los cuidados médicos si el cargo por esta parte es razonable. Need to file my 2012 taxes El costo de la parte médica se tiene que indicar por separado en el contrato del seguro o se le tiene que entregar a usted en un estado de cuentas por separado. Need to file my 2012 taxes Nota: Al calcular la cantidad de primas de seguros que puede incluir en los gastos médicos en el Anexo A, no incluya ningún pago adelantado del crédito tributario por cobertura del seguro médico que aparezca en el recuadro 1 del Formulario 1099-H, Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) Advance Payments (Pagos adelantados del crédito tributario por cobertura de seguro médico (HCTC, por sus siglas en inglés)).

Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si participa en un plan de salud en el que su empleador utiliza automáticamente el valor de la licencia por enfermedad sin usar para cubrir el costo de su participación continuada en el plan de salud (y usted no tiene la opción de recibir dinero en efectivo), no incluya el valor de la licencia por enfermedad sin usar en los ingresos brutos. Need to file my 2012 taxes No puede incluir este costo de su participación continuada en dicho plan de salud como gasto médico. Need to file my 2012 taxes Comidas y Alojamiento Puede incluir en los gastos médicos el costo de comidas y alojamiento en un hospital o institución parecida si el motivo principal para estar allí es recibir cuidados médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Vea Hogar de ancianos y de convalecencia , más adelante.

Need to file my 2012 taxes Puede incluir el costo de tal alojamiento mientras esté lejos de su casa si se reúnen todos los siguientes requisitos: El alojamiento es principal y esencialmente para fines de cuidado médico. Need to file my 2012 taxes El cuidado médico lo provee un médico de un hospital autorizado o de un centro médico asociado con un hospital autorizado o equivalente al mismo. Need to file my 2012 taxes El alojamiento no es lujoso ni extravagante, dadas las circunstancias. Need to file my 2012 taxes El placer personal, el recreo o las vacaciones no son factores significativos de la estadía fuera de su hogar. Need to file my 2012 taxes La cantidad que incluya en los gastos médicos por concepto de alojamiento no puede ser mayor de $50 por cada noche por persona. Need to file my 2012 taxes Puede incluir el alojamiento para una persona que viaje con la persona que recibe el cuidado médico. Need to file my 2012 taxes Por ejemplo, si un padre o una madre viaja con un hijo enfermo, se pueden incluir hasta $100 por noche como gasto médico por alojamiento. Need to file my 2012 taxes No se incluyen comidas. Need to file my 2012 taxes Hogar de ancianos y de convalecencia.

Need to file my 2012 taxes Gastos de automóvil. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Puede incluir gastos de bolsillo, tal como el costo de gasolina y aceite, cuando use su automóvil por razones médicas. Need to file my 2012 taxes No puede incluir depreciación, seguro, reparaciones generales ni gastos de mantenimiento. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si no desea usar los gastos reales para el año 2013, puede usar una tarifa estándar de 24 centavos. Need to file my 2012 taxes    También, puede incluir cargos por estacionamiento y peaje. Need to file my 2012 taxes Puede añadir estos cargos a sus gastos médicos independientemente de si usa los gastos reales o la tarifa estándar por milla. Need to file my 2012 taxes Ejemplo. Need to file my 2012 taxes En 2013, Guillermo Martínez manejó 2,800 millas por razones médicas. Need to file my 2012 taxes Gastó $500 en gasolina, $30 en aceite y $100 en peajes y estacionamiento. Need to file my 2012 taxes Quiere calcular la cantidad que puede incluir en gastos médicos de ambas maneras para ver cuál de las dos le da la mayor deducción. Need to file my 2012 taxes Calcula primero los gastos reales. Need to file my 2012 taxes Suma los $500 por gasolina, $30 por aceite y $100 por peaje y estacionamiento, lo que da un total de $630. Need to file my 2012 taxes Luego, Guillermo calcula la cantidad de la tarifa estándar por milla. Need to file my 2012 taxes Multiplica las 2,800 millas por 24 centavos por milla y llega a un total de $672. Need to file my 2012 taxes Luego, añade los $100 por peaje y estacionamiento, lo que da un total de $772. Need to file my 2012 taxes Guillermo incluye los gastos de automóvil de $772 con sus demás gastos médicos para el año, ya que $772 es más que los $630 que calculó usando sus gastos reales. Need to file my 2012 taxes Gastos de transporte que no puede incluir. Need to file my 2012 taxes   No puede incluir en los gastos médicos el costo de los gastos de transporte en las siguientes situaciones: Ida y vuelta del trabajo, aun si su condición exije un medio de transporte poco común. Need to file my 2012 taxes Viajes por motivos puramente personales a otra ciudad para una operación u otros cuidados médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Viajes que son únicamente para mejorar la salud en general. Need to file my 2012 taxes Los costos de operar un automóvil especialmente equipado por motivos que no sean médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Gastos del Cuidado de un Dependiente Incapacitado Algunos gastos de cuidado de un dependiente incapacitado podrían reunir los requisitos para ser: Gastos médicos o Gastos relacionados con el empleo para reclamar un crédito por el cuidado de dependientes. Need to file my 2012 taxes (Vea el capítulo 32 y la Publicación 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses (Gastos del cuidado de menores y dependientes), en inglés). Need to file my 2012 taxes Puede escoger aplicarlos de una u otra manera siempre que no use los mismos gastos para reclamar tanto un crédito como una deducción por gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes ¿Cómo se Tratan los Reembolsos? Puede incluir en los gastos médicos únicamente las cantidades pagadas durante el año tributario para las cuales no recibió ningún reembolso de seguros ni de otro tipo. Need to file my 2012 taxes Reembolso de Seguros Tiene que deducir del total de sus gastos médicos incurridos durante el año todos los reembolsos de gastos médicos que reciba de seguros u otras fuentes a lo largo del año. Need to file my 2012 taxes Esto incluye los pagos de Medicare. Need to file my 2012 taxes Aun si una póliza provee reembolso sólo por ciertos gastos médicos específicos, tiene que restar las cantidades que reciba de esa póliza del total de sus gastos médicos, incluyendo aquéllos que dicha póliza no reembolsa. Need to file my 2012 taxes Ejemplo. Need to file my 2012 taxes Usted tiene pólizas de seguros que cubren sus facturas de hospital y de médicos pero no sus facturas de cuidados de enfermería. Need to file my 2012 taxes El pago que recibe del seguro para cubrir las facturas del hospital y de médico es superior a lo que le cobraron. Need to file my 2012 taxes Al calcular su deducción médica, tiene que deducir de la cantidad total que gastó en cuidados médicos la cantidad total que recibió del seguro aun si las pólizas no cubren algunos de sus gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Plan (arreglo) de reembolso de gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Un plan (arreglo) de reembolsos médicos (HRA, por sus siglas en inglés) es un plan establecido con fondos del empleador que reembolsa gastos de cuidados médicos a los empleados y permite trasladar al año siguiente cantidades no usadas. Need to file my 2012 taxes Un plan HRA es financiado sólo por el empleador y los reembolsos por gastos médicos (hasta una cantidad máxima de dinero por período de cobertura) no se incluyen en sus ingresos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Otros reembolsos. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Por lo general, no se deduce de los gastos médicos la cantidad de los pagos que recibe por concepto de: La pérdida permanente o la pérdida del uso de un miembro o función del cuerpo (pérdida de una extremidad, vista, oído, etc. Need to file my 2012 taxes ) o la desfiguración, siempre y cuando el pago se base en la naturaleza de la lesión, independientemente de cuánto tiempo esté ausente del trabajo o La pérdida de ingresos. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Sin embargo, tiene que deducir de sus gastos médicos la parte de esos pagos que esté destinada a costos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Vea Cómo Calcular y Reclamar la Deducción en su Declaración de Impuestos , más adelante. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Para saber cómo tratar las indemnizaciones recibidas por lesiones personales o enfermedad, vea Indemnizaciones por Lesiones Personales , más adelante. Need to file my 2012 taxes No tiene una deducción médica si se le reembolsan todos sus gastos médicos del año. Need to file my 2012 taxes Reembolso en exceso. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si se le reembolsa más de sus gastos médicos, podría verse obligado a incluir el excedente en los ingresos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Puede utilizar la Figura 21-A como guía para decidir si alguna parte de su reembolso está sujeta a impuestos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Primas pagadas por usted. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Tiene un reembolso en exceso si paga la totalidad de la prima de su seguro médico, o todos los costos de un plan similar, y los pagos de seguro u otros reembolsos son mayores al total de los gastos médicos del año. Need to file my 2012 taxes Generalmente no se incluye un reembolso en exceso en el ingreso bruto. Need to file my 2012 taxes Primas pagadas por usted y su empleador. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si tanto usted como su empleador contribuyen a su plan de seguro médico y las aportaciones de su empleador no están incluidas en su ingreso bruto, tiene que incluir en su ingreso bruto la parte del reembolso en exceso contribuida por su empleador. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Vea la Publicación 502, en inglés, para calcular el monto del reembolso en exceso que tiene que incluir en su ingreso bruto. Need to file my 2012 taxes Reembolso en un año posterior. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si se le reembolsan en un año posterior los gastos médicos que dedujo en un año anterior, normalmente tiene que declarar el reembolso como ingreso hasta la cantidad que dedujo anteriormente por gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes   No obstante, no declare como ingresos el reembolso que recibió, hasta la cantidad de deducciones médicas que no redujeron su impuesto del año anterior. Need to file my 2012 taxes Para más información sobre la recuperación de una cantidad que declaró como deducción detallada en un año anterior, vea Recuperaciones de Deducciones Detalladas , en el capítulo 12.

Need to file my 2012 taxes Figura 21−A. Need to file my 2012 taxes ¿Es Tributable su Reembolso Médico en Exceso? Gastos médicos no deducidos. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si no dedujo un gasto médico en el año en que lo pagó porque sus gastos médicos no fueron más del 10% de su ingreso bruto ajustado (7. Need to file my 2012 taxes 5% si usted o su cónyuge tiene 65 años de edad o más) o porque no detalló las deducciones, no incluya en sus ingresos el reembolso hasta el máximo de la cantidad del gasto. Need to file my 2012 taxes No obstante, si el reembolso es mayor que el gasto, vea Reembolso en exceso , anteriormente. Need to file my 2012 taxes Ejemplo. Need to file my 2012 taxes En 2013, usted no estuvo casado, era menor de 65 años de edad y tuvo gastos médicos de $500. Need to file my 2012 taxes No puede deducir los $500 porque es menos del 10% de su ingreso bruto ajustado. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si, en un año posterior, se le reembolsa alguna parte de los $500 en gastos médicos, entonces usted no incluye esa cantidad en su ingreso bruto. Need to file my 2012 taxes Indemnizaciones por Lesiones Personales Si recibe una indemnización en una demanda por lesiones personales, parte de esa indemnización podría corresponder a gastos médicos que dedujo en un año anterior. Need to file my 2012 taxes De ser así, tiene que incluir esa parte en sus ingresos del año en el que la recibe en la medida en que dicha cantidad redujo sus ingresos tributables en el año anterior. Need to file my 2012 taxes Vea Reembolso en un año posterior , presentado anteriormente bajo ¿Cómo se Tratan los Reembolsos? Gastos médicos futuros. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si recibe una indemnización por lesiones personales en una demanda por daños y perjuicios, parte de dicha indemnización podría estar destinada a futuros gastos médicos. Need to file my 2012 taxes De ser así, tiene que reducir todos los gastos médicos futuros en los que incurra por esas lesiones hasta que se agote la cantidad que recibió. Need to file my 2012 taxes Cómo Calcular y Reclamar la Deducción en su Declaración de Impuestos Una vez que haya determinado qué gastos médicos puede incluir, calcule y declare la deducción en su declaración de impuestos. Need to file my 2012 taxes ¿Qué Formulario Debe Usar para la Declaración? Calcule la deducción por gastos médicos en el Anexo A (Formulario 1040). Need to file my 2012 taxes No puede declarar gastos médicos en el Formulario 1040A ni en el Formulario 1040EZ. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si necesita más información sobre las deducciones detalladas o no está seguro de poder detallar sus deducciones, vea el capítulo 20 de esta publicación.

Need to file my 2012 taxes 5% si usted o su cónyuge tiene 65 años de edad o más), el cual se encuentra en la línea 38 del Formulario 1040. Need to file my 2012 taxes Gastos de Trabajo Relacionados con un Impedimento Si usted es una persona con una discapacidad, puede tomar una deducción de gastos de negocio que sean necesarios para poder trabajar. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si toma una deducción de estos gastos de negocio relacionados con un impedimento, no reclame una deducción médica por los mismos gastos. Need to file my 2012 taxes Usted tiene una discapacidad si tiene: Una discapacidad física o mental (por ejemplo, ceguera o sordera) que lo limite funcionalmente para trabajar o Un impedimento físico o mental (por ejemplo, un impedimento de la vista o del oído) que limita considerablemente una o más de las actividades importantes de su vida, como llevar a cabo tareas manuales, caminar, hablar, respirar, aprender o trabajar. Need to file my 2012 taxes Definición de gastos de trabajo relacionados con un impedimento. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Los “gastos de trabajo relacionados con un impedimento” son los gastos de negocio habituales y necesarios que: Son necesarios para que usted haga su trabajo de modo satisfactorio, Son para bienes y servicios que no se exigen ni se usan, salvo de manera imprevista, en sus actividades personales y No están cubiertos por otras leyes que rigen el impuesto sobre el ingreso.

Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si trabaja por cuenta propia, deduzca los gastos de negocio en el formulario correspondiente (Anexo C, C-EZ, E o F) para declarar ingresos y gastos de negocio. Need to file my 2012 taxes   Si es empleado, llene el Formulario 2106, Employee Business Expenses (Gastos de negocio del empleado), o el Formulario 2106-EZ, Unreimbursed Employee Business Expenses (Gastos de negocio del empleado no reembolsados), ambos en inglés. Need to file my 2012 taxes Anote en el Anexo A (Formulario 1040) la parte de la cantidad del Formulario 2106, o el Formulario 2106-EZ, relacionada con su impedimento. Need to file my 2012 taxes Anote la cantidad que no esté relacionada con su impedimento en el Anexo A (Formulario 1040).

Need to file my 2012 taxes Tiene que servirse del lector tanto durante sus horas normales de trabajo en su lugar de trabajo como fuera de dicho lugar y horario. Need to file my 2012 taxes Los servicios del lector son únicamente para su trabajo. Need to file my 2012 taxes Puede deducir sus gastos por los servicios del lector como gastos de negocio. Need to file my 2012 taxes Costos del Seguro Médico para Personas que Trabajan por Cuenta Propia Si usted trabajó por cuenta propia y tuvo una utilidad neta ese año, es posible que pueda deducir, como un ajuste a sus ingresos, las cantidades pagadas por seguro médico y seguro de cuidado a largo plazo calificado para usted, su cónyuge, sus dependientes y sus hijos menores de 27 años de edad a finales del año 2013. Need to file my 2012 taxes Para ese fin, se considera que trabajó por cuenta propia si fue socio general (o socio en una sociedad limitada y recibía pagos garantizados) o recibió un salario de una sociedad anónima de tipo S en la que tenía una participación como accionista de más del 2%. Need to file my 2012 taxes El plan de seguros debe estar a nombre de su ocupación o negocio y la deducción no puede ser mayor que su ingreso del trabajo procedente de dicha ocupación o negocio. Need to file my 2012 taxes No puede deducir pagos por seguro médico por ningún mes en el que haya cumplido los requisitos para participar en algún plan de salud subvencionado por su empleador, el empleador de su cónyuge o el empleador de su dependiente o de su hijo menor de 27 años de edad a finales del año 2013. Need to file my 2012 taxes No puede deducir pagos por un contrato de cuidados a largo plazo en ningún mes en el que haya cumplido los requisitos para participar en algún plan de seguro por cuidados a largo plazo subvencionado por su empleador o el empleador de su cónyuge.

Need to file my 2012 taxes Pero si corresponde alguno de los siguientes puntos, no use dicha hoja de trabajo: Tuvo más de una fuente de ingresos sujeta al impuesto sobre el trabajo por cuenta propia. Need to file my 2012 taxes Presenta el Formulario 2555, Foreign Earned Income (Ingreso devengado en el extranjero) o el Formulario 2555-EZ, Foreign Earned Income Exclusion (Exclusión de ingreso devengado en el extranjero), ambos en inglés. Need to file my 2012 taxes Calcula la deducción usando cantidades pagadas por un seguro de cuidados a largo plazo calificado. Need to file my 2012 taxes Si no puede usar la hoja de trabajo de las Instrucciones del Formulario 1040, use la hoja de trabajo de la Publicación 535, Business Expenses (Gastos de negocio), en inglés, para calcular su deducción.

Need to file my 2012 taxes Si detalla sus deducciones y no declara en el Formulario 1040 el 100% de su seguro médico para personas que trabajan por cuenta propia, generalmente puede incluir las demás primas con todos los demás gastos médicos en el Anexo A (Formulario 1040), sujetos al límite del 10% (7.
