Tax refunds for nursing home clients


CLIENTS who use 1,296 beds in Limerick’s 124 nursing homes may be missing out on claiming tax back for the money they or their families are paying for such care. Tax refund specialists say that the average refund received is significantly lower than expected at €5,000. They have teamed up with Nursing Homes Ireland (NHI) to produce a free guide, aimed at ensuring anyone who is paying for nursing homes and the costs associated claims all the reliefs and refunds available to them.
