I can't get an IRP5 from my previous employers in 2012 where I was hired by a outsourcing agency to work for another company they had a contract with, they are giving me the run around as to go to the outsourcing agent or to the company I worked for, no one seems to have my IRP5.
But if I was able to file last year and get my tax returns without SARS requesting this information why do they want it now when they have to give me my tax returns for this year and what must I do to g...
I bought photographic equipment over a period since 2010, the last in February 2015. My previous employer supplied me with equipment to do my job, with the result that I was not allowed any tax deductions for wear-and-tear (depreciation). At my current employer I am using my own equipment on a base of about 60% for work and 40% for private use. Am I allowed to deduct in 2015 for equipment bought since 2010 until 2015?
I used to work for retail when I was a student and worked some weekends got paid differnt amounts depending on my days worked ranging from R200 to R450 a week but I did not get a payslip, now SARS is asking for an IRP5 for 2012 when I was working there. I can't get any thing as I was not getting a payslip I even have no proof that I worked there.
Hi, after filing my tax return for 2015 SARS said I need to submit IRP5 for 2009. Last year it wasn't a problem as they paid out, but this year it is. I contacted my employer of that time and they don't have these records anymore. What do I do now? There is no way to get it.
My wife has submitted her tax return for 2015 and a refund is due to her. SARS is requesting that she file tax returns for 2007 and 2008 before the refund is processed. She changed employment during 2007. The company she worked for is unable to supply her with an IRP5 as it is over 5 years old. What does she do it this case?
Hey Taxtim. I submitted my tax returns on the 10th of July this year. SARS informed me that I would get a refund of about R17000, which I desperately need. After a few days I called them to ask when I might receive this refund, they informed me that they are not going to give it to me yet as I have outstanding tax returns for 2012.
I did not have this issue last year when I filled or the previous year. I worked for a company from February 2011 until August 2011, I was never issued an IRP5 or any payslip. ...
After submitting my 2015 tax return and not getting any feedback from SARS, I called the call centre. They told me that my assessment is on hold until I submit my 2010 tax return. The problem with that is the company I worked for at that time liquidated in April of 2010 and did not submit their EMP501, thus no IRP5s were issued. There is no data in the 2010 tax return. How do I go about filing the tax return? I don't not have all the payslips for that period either.
I have been requested by SARS to complete a tax return for 2012 as I did not complete one at the time as I lived and worked in the UK for the entire 2012 tax period. In response to SARS request, I submitted a nil tax return and have now been requested to supply supporting documentation.
I am not sure what supporting documentation to supply - the lady at the SARS call centre said I need to get an affadavit from t...
I have submitted my Irp5 at a SARS office which I have received June 2015. They informed me that I am being audited and that I had to submit certain documents which I did. After submitting the consultant told me that my tax return would be paid out in 3 working days. It had been more than a week so I phoned SARS to ask what is taking so long. They then informed me that because I was audited the pay out will take 30 days and also that I have an outstanding IRP5 from 2010 that I have to submit that before I can receive my tax return. ...
I would just like to find out I did my income tax and it showed they owe me R5000 but after that I was sent for verification but now as I check my SARS eFilling profile it says assessment received does it mean I will get paid soon or what?
Hi I am using my private vehicles for business travel, part of my job is to do site visits, client meeting ect. I did not receive a travel allowance from my company. Please explain how I can claim this back as I do have log sheets for the travel. I am busy having my package restructured to include a car allowance.
Part 2: can I claim depreciation for one vehicle and also claim travel back or is it not allowed?
SARS is withholding a lot of money this year as they say that the company I worked for 8 years ago never submitted my tax/or they don't have a record of this (which is weird as tax has always been taken off my salary). I left they company in 2009 and they are no longer operating. What do I do?
