Claim A Tax Refund On Your Medical Expenses
You are entitled to claim tax relief on the cost of medical expenses for yourself, your family or any other individuals as long as you have paid for them. How much of a tax refund are you missing out on?
The rate at which tax relief is available for medical expenses is 20% and for nursing home expenses the rate is up to 40%.
The following are examples of some of the costs you can claim tax relief for:
- Doctors and consultants fees
- Monthly prescription costs
- Maintenance or treatment in a hospital
- Supply, maintenance or repair of any medical, surgical, dental or nursing appliance
- Orthoptic or similar treatment
- Transport by ambulance
- IVF Treatment (‘in vitro’ fertilization)
- Many many more…
Treatment from a psychologist or psychotherapist only qualifies for relief if either:
- The psychologist or psychotherapist is a practitioner
- You are referred for a diagnostic procedure by a psychiatrist.
How far back can I go claiming medical expenses?
The time limit for claiming tax relief on medical expenses is set at four years. Currently this means we can claim for medical expenses for the tax years 2013 to 2016. After the end of this year you will lose out on medical expenses for 2013.
