Basel Stadt Tax deductions: Financial support to dependent parents

I would like to ask your view/experience on tax deductions for dependent parents living abroad.

To my understanding, it seems Basel Tax authorities would require:
A) To proof financial dependency (e.g. Tax return or certificate from Foreign State)
B) Proof transfer of a minimum amount of 6.000 CHF/year

Have you requested this deduction in previous years? How it worked? In my case I can prove the first condition but only transferred 4.000 CHF/year

Any advice/suggestion would be very appreciated

Re: Basel Stadt Tax deductions: Financial support to dependent parents

Yes I tried to do this and frustratingly, after compiling various paperwork and obtaining evidence, the question was asked "does your father have more than £xxx (can't remember the figure) in assets and due to my father owning his house, I/he immediately did not qualify.

If they had asked that question at the start, it would have saved me a lot of effort.
