Q: I have 3 siblings. Can all of us claim our mum’s medical expenses under personal tax relief? If she is staying in a retirement home now, can we claim tax relief for the monthly fee?
A: Yes, as long as you have paid for your mum’s medical expenses, you can claim the medical expenses as tax relief. The monthly fee for retirement home is not eligible for tax relief as only expenses for medical care and treatment provided by a nursing home are eligible for tax relief.
Wishing you plentiful tax savings!
