My siblings and I transfer funds to my mum's bank account monthly to contribute to a Discovery executive medical aid plan which is more than R4000/month; she is the main member. My mum gets a state pension fund which she lives on. She obviously will not submit a tax return. Now, can I claim the portion that I transfer to her account on my tax return. I have a EFT going out monthly from my account.
She is not fully dependent on me but obviously cannot afford a medical aid with a state pension.
