The answer to this query is based on legislation as at 2014/03/13.

Q: I need assistance with a medical objection regarding a medical deduction as SARS rejected my original objection. This is regarding his medical contributions.

 A: SARS should have provided reasons as to why the objection was disallowed. Please check on eFiling under letters, or alternatively contact the call centre and request reasons. One would not be in a good position to appeal the fact that the objection was disallowed if reasons for the disallowance are not available. 



Section 240A of the Tax Administration Act, 2011 (as amended) requires that all tax practitioners register with a recognized controlling body before 1 July 2013. It is a criminal offense to not register with both a recognized controlling body and SARS.
