I am starting a new job and I will be taking over my medical aid privately so my company will not contribute towards my medical aid. I will be paying for main member 3 dependents (adult & 2 children). How does this medical aid tax credit work? Would I now be able to benefit on tax if I pay privately? Lets work on I will earn R20 000. 00 a month?
