I am an employed person and have no trouble doing my tax return with SARS e-filing. What I would like to know is the following: Since October 2013 I have been paying my Mom's medical aid, she is a 70 year old pensioner (state pension grant) and not registered for tax. She is not on my medical aid as it is more affordable to have a separate medical aid for her.
This year she received a tax certificate from her medical aid. Is there any way in which I can claim for her medical aid contributions on my tax return as I am the sponsor? Could it be seen as medical expenditure under the code 4020?
You can claim this for her if she is financially dependent on you. You would include her under the number of dependents in the Medical section and actually add the amount spent to the 4040 source code.

Only a pleasure! If SARS audits you then please include a letter explaining the situation and the fact you support her and why her medical aid isn't on your name.
