How to Claim Tax Back On Qualifying Dental Expenses
To claim tax back for non-routine dental expenses your dentist must complete a Med 2 Form which is essentially a receipt for your dental expenses.
You do not need to send your Med 2 to Revenue, but you should keep it in your records. You may be requested to provide it if Revenue need to check your claim.
You then claim the dental expenses by claiming health expenses as usual at the end of the tax year and supplying the figure for dental expenses.
