What other medical expenses can I claim from SARS?



Hi I have medical aid, due to the dr asking private rates I had to pay the dr for every visit an extra R100, I had several visits and now the dr has to do a procedure and I have to pay in an aditional amount can I claim back the money from SARS?

You can claim any medical expense such as doctor's bills as a tax deduction, but there is a threshold that SARS allows before there is a tax benefit. You would add up all the fees that your medical aid does not cover and include these on the income tax return you submit each year. Remember to keep records and proof of payment for all bills and accounts, otherwise SARS may not accept.
