Tax relief for coeliac’s & diabetics

Tax relief for coeliac’s & diabetics

Tax relief for Coeliac’s and Diabetic’s 

Coeliac’s may claim relief in respect of:

a) qualifying health expenses, and
b) the cost of foods that have been specifically manufactured to be gluten free
(excluding gluten free alcohol). Such food may be considered an allowable
expense for the purposes of a health expenses claim.

As the condition is generally on-going, a letter, (instead of prescriptions), from a
doctor stating that the taxpayer is a coeliac sufferer is acceptable.

If receipts are requested, such receipts are not confined to those from a chemist.
Receipts from supermarkets, etc., in respect of foods that have been specifically
manufactured to be gluten free are also acceptable.

Diabetic patients may claim tax relief in respect of:

a) qualifying health expenses; and
b) the cost of food products manufactured specifically for diabetics. Such food
may be considered an allowable expense for the purposes of a health
expenses claim.

A letter from a doctor stating that the taxpayer is diabetic is acceptable.

If receipts are requested, such receipts are not confined to those from a chemist.

Receipts from supermarkets, etc., in respect of food products manufactured
specifically for diabetics are also acceptable.
