Hello. I do not have medical aid and am self employed. I pay all medical bills cash. May I still claim for this expense on my 2015 tax return? Thank you.

To answer your question, yes you can claim these medical expenses in the Medical section, which will be subject to a formula set out in our blog on Medical Tax Credits

If you register for TaxTim we will ask you all the required questions about your medical aid spending to make sure that it is claimed correctly on your tax return.
