I did not submit medical bills in company. Can I claim it u/s 17 B while filing my Income Tax Returns?



I get medical allowance from my company. Had I submitted the medical bills in the copmany, I would have got the exemption(Rs 15000). Can I claim it u/s 17 B while filing my Income Tax Returns. If yes where exactly in ITR 1 do I need to show it.

  1. Since u get medical allowance u can claim exemption of- amt of medical allowance received or 15000 whichever is less.Keep medical bills (in case there is any assessment) U hav to compute ur taxable income again by availin this benefit and check ur new tax amount. Excess wld be refundable.
