Net medical expenses calculator

Mar 16, 2011

The medical expenses tax offset only applies if your net medical expenses exceeds $2,000 (prior to 2010/11 the threshold was $1,500) excluding contributions to private health insurers, travel or accommodation expenses associated with medical treatment or inoculations for overseas travel.
 
You can only claim medical expenses for yourself and/or your dependants who are Australian residents for tax purposes.
