Hi there, this probably sounds like a dumb question but am sure someone knows the answer!!We are going private in Waterford and consultants fees are 2500.VHI give back 400 of that but can my husband claim tax relief on the rest?I have claimed a tax refund as I wont be working again this year so obviously I cant claim it!!Do we need to get the receipts changed into his name too?? O:|

You claim it back at the end of the year (well start of new year) with your MED1. They'll put it into your accoutn for you. If your receipts are for last year than same thing applies but you can get it this year. Register on www.revenue.ie and you can do it all online. Very simple and quick. Just doing ours from last year at hte moment.

If you are married & jointly assessed for tax then yes he can claim the tax relief on your medical expenses. No need to get them in his name.
