If any deduction under medical allowance made from your salary than it is comes on tax benifit but if it was paid with your salary than it is just a Salary head to divide your salary like basic, HRA, Transportation Allowance, Education Allowance, LTA, Medical Allowance etc.
As per my knowledge salary head Medical Allowance not giving any tax benefits
Medical reimbursement head can give you tax relaxations, if your employer giving relaxations on medical allow. term than it might be wrong practice by employer .
Tell your employer to use Medical or Medical reimbursement term.
Seniors please advice.
I have just talked with my CA, he told me that we can file the pending amount whether you had claim through Employer or not,
Please consult with consultant.
At time of Refund money, IT Officer may ask you for proof of Medical Reimbursement.
Because some people told me that I cant; only possibility was that if it was 'Medical Reimbursement' in payslips, but it is 'Medical Allowance' actually.
But from the responses I am getting here, I think I can still claim the Rs 15000 for tax exemption from the total taxable income indicated in the form16 by the employer.
Am I right?
