My son has Type 1 diabetes and I was told a last year you can claim a % of his food back. Do you know how this is possible?

He is listed with a disability on my husbands tax.

There are special lists that are applicable, you would need to consult with SARS if they will accept this, sometimes they will and sometimes they won't so it is best to check first before claiming.

Thanks for your reply.

So where can we get the lists from?

You can download the list from the SARS website if you search in the box for Disability/Impairment - let me know if can assist further.
