Is Laser Eye Surgery tax deductible? What is the cost of Laser Eye Surgery?
A tax rebate was available to any taxpayer whose net medical expenses (for themselves or their dependants) in the year of income exceed $2,000. The amount of rebate was 20% of the excess over $2,000 and was paid by the Australian Tax Office as part of the taxpayer’s income tax return assessment.
Medical Expenses include payments made to registered medical practitioners, dentists, orthodontists and opticians. Also included are payments made to public or private hospitals in relation to an operation or illness.
The Net Medical Expenses Tax Offset is repealed from 1 July 2019.
