I am currently employed and am ready to submit my tax return; however I have a question relating to medical expenses that were not covered by my medical aid. My medical aid is partially subsidized by my company, I contribute 40% and my employer contributes the remaining 60% towards the monthly contributions.
Am I still allowed to claim tax back on these medical expenses even though I do not pay the full medical aid contribution?

The tax credit has already most likely been taken into account in your PAYE if this is paid via your employer. Send your IRP5 to tim@taxtim.com for us to have a look quick.
