Arizona allows 100 percent of medical expenses when you itemize.
Make sure you get all the deductions you're entitled to.

It's difficult to reach the percentage of adjusted gross income you need to spend on medical expenses to be eligible for
the federal tax deduction, but you shouldn't overlook all possible expenses. If your tax home is Arizona and you have medical expenses, Arizona allows 100 percent of the medical expenses when you itemize your deductions. You may have enough to itemize for Arizona even if you utilize the standard deduction for federal tax purposes.

All qualified medical expenses paid by you for you and your dependents may be deducted.
