Are you entitled to Tax Relief on the cost of your Medicines?
Yes, is the answer. Total outlay on prescribed drugs or medicines for the year may be included on Form Med 1 – Health Expenses Claim for Relief when making your tax return. We have been advised by Revenue that the €2.50 Medical Card item levy also qualifies. We can provide you with a summary statement at any time detailing your total expenditure here in the Pharmacy. A claim for tax relief must be made within 4 years after the end of the tax year to which the claim relates.
