I submitted my tax return through SARS eFiling on 20/11/2015 and it was confirmed that I am entitled to a refund but has not been paid yet. I only claimed for expenses listed on my medical aid IRP5 not covered by my medical aid so there was no strange claims made. However, if I remember correctly, the initial tax return after I submitted was the amount for those medical expenses but when I checked the status of that tax return now, It was almost R200 less. This also happened with my 2014 tax return!
How is SARS calculating the tax return? Are they not suppose to pay me back for the charges not paid by my medical aid? Or at least a fair percentage of those charges?
