Income Tax: Do I declare the mother’s health plan? – 05/10/2022 – Market

I pay my mother health insurance. The invoice comes in my name. Can I deduct this expense? (NBC)

As a health plan holder, you cannot deduct the amounts referring to your mother if she declares it separately. Your mother may be considered a dependent if, in 2021, she received income, taxable or not, of up to R$22,847.76. If your mother chooses to file it separately, she will be able to deduct the health insurance expense for her portion. Therefore, even declaring separately, each one can inform in his declaration the part that fits him in the health plan, according to the proof provided by the operator.

My health plan is linked to my father’s plan (I am no longer dependent on him and I declare separately). In the plan report, the expenses with each beneficiary are detailed. Can I declare these expenses on my IR? (RPP)

As a health plan holder, your father cannot deduct the amounts related to your share, as you declare it separately. You can only deduct your part of the health plan, as detailed on the income statement provided by the operator.
