I became a stay at home Mom as of 1 Dec 2015. I know money's transferable from hubby are not taxed. Can I still pay for things and my hubby claim for them? I have a disability and have two autistic sons. All three of us are registered as disabled with SARS.

Do you have medical aid and who is the main member?

You husband should make those payments for you all and then he can make this claim. The invoices etc should be in his name.

Hubby pays the debit order but I am the main member.
Should I change him to the main member as well?

Yes that would be much better for SARS purposes.
