I'm busy filling out my ITR12 on the SARS eFiling website, and I'm unsure of something in the 'Medical Deductions' section.
The very first line reads "Did you incur any medical expenditure (including medical scheme contributions made by you or your employer)?" Right below it, there is a section where you have to specify the number of members for each month. If I have been on a medical aid for the entire year, with myself as the only member, does this mean that I have to fill in '1' for each month?
Also, I should state any medical aid scheme contributions (4040) not reflected on my IRP5. For argument's sake, if I contribute R1 000 p/m to my medical aid, my employer contributes R1 000 p/m and my IRP5 shows a total contribution of R12 000, does this mean that I should fill in the other R12 000 in section 4040?
I'd really appreciate it if one of the knowledgeable folks on the forum could clear this up for me.
