Tax Relief on Nursing Home Fees

Income Tax relief is available on Nursing Home fees.

If you are paying nursing home fees for yourself or on behalf of a parent or loved one, you can claim relief on nursing home expenses at your highest rate of tax, subject to certain conditions.

This can be claimed under the general scheme for tax relief on medical expenses. The tax relief can be claimed at up to 40% of the cost of paying for Nursing Home Care. Relief cannot be claimed on any share paid by the HSE.

If you pay for other qualifying medical costs, you can also claim medical expenses at a rate of 20%.
