Hello,

I will be purchasing hearing aids this year and I am wondering if I am able to make a claim under the T5 medical expense section in my 2019/2020 tax return?

 

Information on the ATO website is saying that this is being phased out however when I spoke to a representative on the phone they advised I can declare the expense and the ATO will assess how much I can claim.

 

Before I make the purchase I would like to know if this claim is still possible.

 

Thank you
