Financing options and fiscal deductibility
Use the possibility of fiscal deductibility:
Eye laser treatment or eye surgery is fiscally deductible as extraordinary burden. In 2006 the financial administration voted regarding fiscal treatment of expenses for interventions in the field of refractive surgery. Starting point for this decision was the question if for fiscal consideration a doctor´s certificate, issued prior to surgery, should be requested. The decision is unequivocal: taxpayers that undergo refractive eye surgery always suffer from a defective vision and therefore from a disease.
Thus surgery constitutes a therapy with a scientifically proven surgical method. Costs for this surgery should be regarded as an extraordinary burden without the presentation of a doctor´s certificate. (Source: Oberfinanzdirektion Koblenz, 22.06.2006 (S 2284 A – St 32 3).
