According to a recent survey, only four in ten people claimed back the tax they pay on their medical expenses in the past four years. 20% can be reclaimed on medical expenses that are not covered by the state or health insurance.
At €12 per a standard €60 GP not to mention prescriptions, hospital visits, and physio treatments and perhaps educational assessments – there are much more qualifying expenditures. The value of a tax rebate can quickly add up.
Many people believe that the process to claim back your expenses is too complex and time-consuming but in reality, it couldn’t be easier.
Nursing home expenses can be claimed back at your highest rate of tax, up to 40%.
People should keep their medical receipts in a box or drawer and start claiming back their money!
This claim can be made through ROS and can be made for the last 4 years. So now is a good time to get cracking before the refund for 2012 claim is disqualified.
