Certain expenses related to sickness can be deducted from taxable income.
This is described in §33 of the German Income Tax Act (EstG).
This also includes the personal contribution to dental treatment, such as dental treatment costs for dental fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures or orthodontic treatment, etc.
The taxable so-called “extraordinary financial burden” is calculated as a percentage of the total income.
Dental treatment costs should be stated in the annual wage or income tax return. This can reduce the tax amount.
We recommend that you seek advice from a tax consultant, an assistance tax assistance union or the tax office.
