In the case of a child with a disability : The father and mother are on separate medical aids. The child with the disability is on the fathers' medical aid so contributions paid by the father does qualify. My question now is when you do the mothers' tax return do you also state that she has a child with a disability or does only the father benefit in terms of tax deductions.

No, if the father pays for the expenses then it will be he who claims the disability expenditure.
