I am aware that the fair deal scheme allows for patients in nursing homes to contribute to the cost but taking up to 80% of their income and an annual 7.5% of the value of their assets. The 7.5% can be paid by way of a loan and recouped by the HSE when the person passes away and the asset, usually home, is sold. Is there any tax relief available for the contributions from income and in particular the annual 7.5% deferred payment. Can the children of the deceased claim any relief for the 7.5% x 3 years which is paid to the HSE?
