Tax Rebate Scheme For Medical Expenses

A significant rebate can be claimed through your end of year tax return if you incur medical expenses over $2,000 during the one financial year.

Anyone can claim the tax offset: there is no upper limit on the amount you can claim, however it is now income tested. The rebate is currently 20 cents for every dollar over the $2000 threshold.

There is no upper limit on the amount you can claim, and it is not means or assets tested. Because this is a rebate rather than a tax deduction, you can claim this from the ATO even if you do not pay tax. As always, also check with your accountant or financial advisor.
