Hi, I am health insured as a dependent with my husband, who is the main member. Can I claim any of the expenses for health insurance with SARS even though I am not the main member? And if yes, how much would that be? (The health insurance only gives the lumpsum for all insured members in their tax certificate). Thanks!
May I deduct contributions made to support my parents expenses to pay for the old age home. His pension is about half the amount of his medical aid. We are three siblings and all pay in R3,500 per month to support their stay in a one bedroom full board stay in an old age home. He contributes what he can.
For Provisional tax that's due now, do I enter medical credit for the year as per SARS instructions and then half it or not? Same question for medical expenses, do I add up medical expenses for 6 months (March to August 2015) and then multiply by 2 for estimate for one year or not to multiply and submit actual?
My employer loaded code 4005 as the amount that I contributed, and code 3810 the amount that the employer contributed. I thought code 4005 is supposed to be the total amount that goes to the medical aid or am I wrong? The sum of the two amounts was then loaded to codes 4116 and 4497. I believe this is another mistake. Should I correct it myself or submit it as received?
I submitted my tax claim for 2015 on SARS and made a mistake the first time (not adding medical aid tax amount) and requested a correction ( added the tax amount ) but then I was under audit so today 30 days later I receive a phone call from SARS asking me to submit my tax clearance breakdown certificate, the only problem I have now is that I didn't even know you should claim the slips because they are added in to the tax clearance breakdown certificate. Now what will happen?
I am using my vehicle for business purposes and I kept a Skytrax logbook. I traveled about 40% of my KM's for business. I do not have a travel allowance and my commission was less than 50% of my income. Can I still claim my travel expenses? My Employer is not willing to amend the IRP5 to include a travel allowance. I still feel that I am out of pocket and I was not advised by my Employer when I started that I should structure my salary with a travel allowance. Please advise if there is a way...
I am a tax returning resident to South Africa. Been working in Botswana for the last 16 years and tax returned to work in RSA from June 2014. I have been contributing monthly to a medical aid scheme in Botswana(BOMAID), will this be deemed tax deductible to SARS?
I am helping someone with their tax. The person is 66 years old and has an monthly retirement annuity payout of R7000 and monthly interest (from investments) of about R4000 that gets paid out also monthly to them. Should a tax return be filed,or are there exemptions? I know the over 65 year olds get exempt of certain amounts for interest earned,but im not sure if that is the only excemption,or is there a total amount of income they are excempt of? Or must you add the two excemption amounts toge...
I earn a gross salary of R26000. 00 plus I have company benefits of R3881. 00 (being medical aid). When working out the TAX deduction on my salary, is it calculated from R26000. 00 or from R26000 R3881? I see that my current TAX deductions are TAX R5491. 94 UIF R148. 72 and I am just wondering how that was determined. Thank you
I have been doing my mom's tax return. She had hearing aids which her medical aid did not pay for last year. She gave me the paperwork and asked me to submit. Which I did. She now just told me that she forgot about the hearing aids and would like to have them claimed back. Is this now possible? According to the SARS eFiling website the claim is done (she owes nothing and will get back nothing). Can I do something to submit this?
I pay monthly amounts from my bank account for a medical aid for my mom. The medical aid is in her name though. Can I put these contributions on my tax return. If yes where will it be entered on SARS eFiling?
