I wonder if you can help me. My wife works for Nedbank (NedGroup medical aid scheme)and I am on her medical aid, but I pay my contribution to her.
Am I allowed to claim a tax deduction because of the fact that we pay a monthly fee. On her IRP5 it says:Source code:4474=R16017(Employers med/aid contribution in respect of the employee) and 4005=R16017),total deductions(4497)=R32034.She does not claim any of the contributions.

Your wife will automatically get a medical tax credit for the 2 members, look under source code 4116 on the IRP5 on the right hand side. It would not matter who claims because the credit is the same. She has to claim however as the medical aid is in her name.
