I am paying for a medical aid that I am not on, it is for my wife and 3 kids the medical aid is on her name but the payments are deducted from my bank account. Can I claim for this on my tax return? if the answer is yes what proof do I give sars because the medical aid certificate is on her name
You would need to give them bank statements showing you pay for the medical aid as well as write a letter explaining the situation and why you pay for it if she is a dependent of yours. Alternatively she can claim as the medical credit is the same regardless of who claims on their return.
