Tax Rebates

SARS offers tax rebates to lighten your individual tax burden. These are tax rebates based on age, medical expenses, and retirement contributions. For most salary earners, the primary rebate automatically reduces your tax liability based on your income. You might also qualify for secondary rebates if you’re over 65 and tertiary rebates for individuals over 75.

Additionally, medical expenses exceeding 7.5% of your income and contributions to retirement funds can further reduce your tax liability through deductions. Remember, these are just highlights, and consulting a tax professional is crucial to ensure you claim all eligible rebates and deductions for maximum benefit.
