Payments that you make for all dental services and treatments are eligible for the government’s 20% Medical Expenses Rebate.
If your expenses in a financial year exceed $2000 and you are an Australian tax payer, then you are able to claim the rebate.
The rebate amount is currently 20% of the excess over $2000. Payments for dental services and treatments can be added to other general medical expenses, increasing your entitlement.
Example: If your total medical and dental expenses are $4000.00 then you would be entitled to a 20% rebate of $500.00
(Remember to keep all reciepts and take along to your accountant at the end of the finanical year)
