Reclaiming Tax on Medical Expenses on Revenue Account

    Hi all,

    So I am trying to get some tax back on medical expenses that werent covered by my Health Insurance.

    On Receipts Tracker on my Revenue account I have uploaded receipts from my GP, prescribed medications and appointments with consultants. However they show up as 'Claimed Receipts' but have not been credited to my account.

    Could anyone give me a step by step guide on how to get these processed?

    Kind Regards.

    You file your tax return for the relevant year you incurred the expense and ensure they are included on it.

    I’m not fully PAYE so I return Form 11 annually via ROS. I don’t upload receipt images but return total sum of medical expenses and keep receipts just in case Revenue decided to do an audit.

    Can I get away with anything if I pay the piper, so to speak?

    I wonder is it better to submit all your claims when doing the tax return rather than using the receipts tracker and them being processed live? I see several posts on here from people who receive statements of liability but the claims aren't being processed and they have to resubmit.It has to be more of a nuisance keeping an eye on SOLs to see if they're correct everytime a person submits a claim live through receipt tracker.

    If you upload medical receipts during the year on that tracker they are probably adding to your tax credits. Check if you got an amended tax credit certificate.
