Medical expenses deductions
Medical expenses deductions are part of a system whereby if the amount of medical care costs paid in one year, including those of family members, exceeds a certain standard, you can file a final tax return with the tax office to have the excess amount of medical care costs deducted from your taxable income and have some of your taxes refunded.
Check with your nearest tax office for details, including how to conduct the necessary procedures. Information is also available on the National Tax Agency website.
