If you pay your own medical aid (employer contributes nothing) and you wish to get your Medical Tax Credit (MTC) do you input the MTC on e-filing under code 4116? Or is that only for when an employer contributes. If not where do you put it or does SARs calculate it based on your medical deductions section?
No, you don't enter the credit anywhere directly. You will only enter in the contribution amount to the medical aid in the Medical section of the tax return and the MTC will be calculated based on that automatically by SARS.
