HMy salary for the 2014 tax year is below the threshold. I have a retirement annuity fund and medical aid.

Will SARS take my allowable deductions into account when calculating tax payable/refund? Or am I not allowed to claim these deduction?

If you did not pay any tax then there is nothing to deduct against and so you will be unable to get a refund, however you must out these amounts in as the retirement will be carried forward to next year.
