Can I still query my statement of assessment after the tax returns deadline?

Posted 10 December 2015

I completed my first tax return via SARS eFiling early November (I have only been working for two years). After the SARS eFiling deadline, I checked to see my statement of assessment, and found it be by -20 cents. I am not sure if I filed correctly, but I was expecting a larger tax return. Is it too late for me to re-submit or correct my tax return, even though I initially completed it before the tax deadline?

Late submission of supporting documents

Posted 8 December 2015

I submitted a tax return on SARS eFiling. A letter requesting supporting docs was issued but I neglected to upload within specified time. An additional letter was issued 21 days later, when our practice was closed for the December holidays. Once the additional assessment was issued I only realised that the documents were never submitted. I uploaded the documents on the open link. The Sole Proprietor's expenses was denied against his income and now has a massive tax debt. During the year I submit...

How do I submit a late IRP5 for a previous tax year on SARS eFiling?

Posted 4 December 2015

I have submitted my tax return for this year but have been told they won't pay out until I submit my outstanding tax returns from last year (fair enough). I wasn't earning a salary for most of last year but I believe I still need to submit the IRP5 which covers the last month of my employment with my previous company from that year. I got hold of my previous company and they sent through the form really quickly but I can't figure out how to submit for a previous year on SARS eFiling. The SARS he...

I'm due for a refund but still owe SARS...

Posted 4 December 2015

I'm due for a refund but there's a 'hold-up' as I owe SARS something from 2009. I'm not sure what to do fro this point forward - where or how do I find out what is owed - how can SARS be owing me when I owe them - why weren't there red flags or bold flashing print popping up when I completed my annual tax returns?
It's like they're hiding the fact that I owe them and I've now probably encured some hefty penalties and interest... ;(

How can I claim house hold expenses portion if allowed to work from home?

Posted 27 November 2015

In reference to claiming house hold expenses as my employment contracted stated I could work from home as well if needed. I do not have an ITR12 form, only an IRP5/IT3(a) form. If I do not have an ITR12 form, does this mean I cannot claim this?

Do two owners need to split rental expenses and income in a tax return?

Posted 27 November 2015

My wife and I share a rental property and split costs equally. Are we meant to split these on our tax returns or should we populate only what we each pay from our specific bank accounts? Rental income comes into my bank account and the interest expense comes off it as well.
