I am the dependent on my boyfriends medical aid. Our medical savings finished early and I paid via eft for all of my xrays, doctors, medicines etc, can I claim that back on tax return, or does it have to be done on his. I have proof of all the payments etc, the accounts however were in his name, but it showed that it was for me.
Yes you should be able to do this. When you complete the tax return and the Medical section there will be a space for amounts not recovered from medical aid and you can enter amounts there that you paid yourself for your own medicines etc
