Yes only those tax payers who claim the NMETO for the 2012/13 income year will be eligible for the NMETO for the 2013/14 income year if they have eligible out of pocket medical expenses above the relevant thresholds. Similarly, only those who claim the NMETO in 2013/14 may be eligible for the NMETO in 2014/15

The NMETO will continue to be available for certain tax payers until 2019 when DisabilityCare Australia is fully operational.

Is it true the net medical expenses tax offset (NMETO) is being phased out?
