Claiming Your Medical Expenses

Every year thousands of euros in refunds of income tax go unclaimed from the Revenue Commissioners according to latest statistics.

If you have paid income tax, do you know you can claim tax back on medical expenses that you have not been reimbursed for elsewhere?

An example of medical expenses includes;

  • Doctors’ visits
  • Hospital visits
  • Prescriptions
  • Physiotherapy
  • Qualifying dental treatment (MED2)

There is a range of other medical expenses available for which you can get tax relief. You can consult the revenue website for further information.

 

These medical claims can be claimed through your My Revenue Account if you have one set up. If not this can be set up through www.revenue.ie/en/online-services/index.aspx.
