I paid almost R3000 towards medicines, apart from my MSA. Why has SARS not returned this amount? Can you please check?

Please have a look at our Medical Tax Credits blog for an understanding of how this deduction works. If you have any further questions please let us know.

You need to spend more than 7.5% of your income on other medical expenses before those will be considered as enough to get you any money back from SARS.
