Check under your rebates at the bottom of the calculator, does it show more than R11440, if so then your medical rebate has been included here. Tax deductions for Out of Pocket expenses are calculated using a SARS defined formula so any other expenditure would only appear if it exceeds the formula threshold.
Do you keep a logbook for travel? Are you trying to claim under a travel allowance or on the other expenses page?

Thnx - medical rebate question answered. Just on the travel. I see that my IRP5 from my one employer did not include travel allowance it seems - so then I wont be able to claim right? I did have a R2000 travel allowance but they must have then included this with my salary? Is there any other way I can claim for travel in this case? What is source code 3605? Just want to know what that amount was for?

Source Code 3605 is for annual bonuses. You need to go back to your employer and ask them to resubmit the IRP5 with the corrected change for travel allowance. However you can only claim if you have kept a logbook.
