SARS only allows a medical expenditure claim of any amount over 7.5% of your taxable income as a deduction. So often taxpayers have large medical expenses paid out of pocket, but they aren't allowed as deductions because they are below the threshold. If you would like to send me your amounts I can calculate it for you.
