I have completed my tax return via SARS eFiling and entered R10,200 rand worth of out of pocket medical expenses. When I click on "calculate" results I don't see any SARS reimbursements and the value SARS owes me doesn't change if I add and remove the out of pocket medical expense value. I don't see medical expenses on the calculated results on PDF it creates. Why is it being ignored?
