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

Yes you would add the R26 000 and the R3 881 to get to the amount you will be taxed on. You can make use of our SARS income tax calculator to work out the tax on this amount.
