Precisely.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Budget 2015: Help for familiesThe foreign domestic worker concessionary levy will be halved to S$60 from May, to help families with elderly folk and young children.

Among the various measures, the Government will halve the foreign domestic worker concessionary levy - from the current S$120 to S$60 - to help families who are taking care of the elderly, from May 1.

The concessionary levy will also be extended to households with children aged below 16 - up from below 12. The annual savings from the reduced levy amount to S$720 a year.

mum wanted to get a maid as she gets tired easily from housework...even though a part timer comes once a week. dad is 75. she would be entitled to the reduced levy right?
