Hi TimI have been unemployed this year so have had no income, but have still paid monthly for my medical aid (me and my daughter) and for my RA. Would I be able to claim any tax rebate/refund for the medical aid or RA ?? Thanks Canz

No, as you do not receive any income to offset the deductions against you cannot claim a refund. no taxes were payable.
