Regarding medical expenses. I'm the primary member and pay for the medical aid and so I put the relevant info and dependents on my return. My wife encountered some individual medical expenses of her own (not claimed from medical aid).
1. Can she put her expenses in her own return under code 4020?
2. What if I paid some of the accounts on her behalf - does it matter?

If she paid the expenses herself then she can claim them, not if someone paid on her behalf unfortunately.
