Medical Tax Credit

What is a Medical Tax Credit?

The medical tax credit, brought in from the 2013 tax year provides for a monthly credit against your tax owing to SARS. If you and/or your dependents belong to a medical aid then you will receive in 2020, a R310  (R310 in 2019) medical tax credit per month for the first two members and a further R209 in 2020 (R209 in 2019) per month for every other member or dependent on the same policy. The credit will be deducted automatically off your tax payable. This is different to the previous system where medical aid contributions were deducted against income.
