Tax breaks will help South Africans

CAPE TOWN — The national treasury is proposing tax breaks on medical aid contributions, at a cost to the state of R2,8bn-R3,8bn a year, to encourage broader medical scheme coverage.

The new fringe-benefit tax regime on medical aid contributions — due for implementation from the 2006-07 tax year — is aimed at promoting medical aid membership among low- to middle-income employees, South African Revenue Service (SARS) GM of tax law administration, Kosie Louw, said yesterday.

Seems like this legislation may have the effect of taxing those in the higher income brackets, disproportionately.
A wealth tax on people who mostly, by Western standards, would be not considered well off at all!
