A work colleague's daughter who is not considered to be a dependent in terms of sec 18, as she works and is 31, of the income tax act ended up in hospital last year with tick bite fever. The bills amounted to about R220 000. The mom paid all the bills for the daughter and wants to know if she can claim these under her tax return as her daughter earns so little there will be no tax paid back. The daughter is not on a medical aid of her own and is also not on her moms medical aid.

Unfortunately she cannot as she is not financially dependent on her mother usually and does not meet the age requirements. This is harsh, but unfortunately the way it works.
