I am married in community of property. My wife and I had a baby in February. There were quite a few accounts we had to pay cash. The medical aid is in my wife's name. Are we able to claim the medical expenses we paid out of our own pocket after February but the accounts are in February. Also can I claim some of the medical expenses we paid out for the birth of my son instead of my wife claiming as I am not on the medical aid and do not have any medical expenses. I paid the amounts as my wife had no income due to maternity leave.

Whomever paid the expenses will be able to claim them. They must be related to the period March 2014 to February 2015 in order to be claimed.
