I tried to claim for medical expenses that I paid out of my own pocket but did not receive rebate, instead I have to pay SARS?

SARS uses a complicated formula to calculate whether your Out of Pocket medical expenses must reduce your total tax owing. The calculation depends on the income you earn and in many taxpayers' cases there actually is no reduction because the required threshold is not met.

Please make use of our Medical Tax Credits Calculator to work out credit you will receive as a result of medical expenses.
