Line 33099 - Medical expenses for self, spouse or common-law partner, and your dependent children born in 2003 or later

Note: Line 33099 was line 330 before tax year 2019.

You can claim medical expenses that are more than the lesser of:

  • $2,397
  • 3% of the deceased's total net income from line 23600 of all returns for the year of death

The medical expenses incurred on behalf of the deceased can be for any 24-month period that includes the date of death, as long as no one has claimed them on any other return.

Attach the receipts for medical expenses to the return.


You may be able to claim a credit of up to $1,272 if you have an amount on Line 21500 - Disability supports deduction, or Line 33200, the allowable portion of medical expenses. Use the net income from the deceased's final return, and the spouse's or common-law partner's net income for the entire year, to calculate this credit. For details, see Line 45200 - Refundable medical expense supplement.

For more information on medical expenses, see Line 33099.
