More evidence that governments attack those who can’t fight back, namely the ill and the poor.
The net medical expenses tax offset will no longer be available from 1 July 2019.
From 1 July 2019 if you have to buy a wheelchair to get around, the tax offset you were allowed (a pathetic 10% of the cost, but at least something) is being deleted. How lovely and caring of those on over $200k p.a. and couldn’t give a stuff.
“From the 2014-15 income year until the end of the 2018-2019 income year, taxpayers can only claim the net medical expenses tax offset for medical expenses that both meet: the current definition and eligibility requirements, and relate to disability aids, attendant care or aged care”.
How lovely of our caring government to kick all sick people in the balls!
