In 1999, my family will be over the 7.5% threshold for medical deductions. I didn't realize until December that SUPPLIES for contact lens care are a deductible item. So I had not kept any receipts until then, when of course I loaded up. Here's my question: what leeway, if any, will the IRS allow me as far as estimating the cost of saline solution etc. that my family members and I used earlier in the year (instead of having actual receipts)? Help. Thanks.
