I am helping someone with their tax. The person is 66 years old and has an monthly retirement annuity payout of R7000 and monthly interest (from investments) of about R4000 that gets paid out also monthly to them. Should a tax return be filed,or are there exemptions? I know the over 65 year olds get exempt of certain amounts for interest earned,but im not sure if that is the only excemption,or is there a total amount of income they are excempt of? Or must you add the two excemption amounts toge...
I am joint owner (50%) of a property with my son. He is the primary resident, I am not. If we sell the property, how is the Capital Gains Tax calculated? The gain will be way below the threshold of gain of a primary residence.
I registered a company and It was registered for income tax. I am the sole Director and shareholder. When it makes money and I pay some of this to myself am I liable for provisional tax? I know there is a threshold but does that threshold amount include my Normal Salary that I get from my employer?
I am an independent contractor and my earnings is below R200 000 per year. Over the past two years, I have managed to save and have invested R100 000 in listed shares and R50 000 in investment funds such as unit trusts. I am not sure whether I need to submit a tax return?
I submitted my tax and was told how much of a R,,,, amount I will be getting back(great news). However straight after I submitted I realized there is a stack of receipts at home for medical bills that I did not enter. Is it too late to correct the already submitted tax return?
How long will it take to get assessed and refunded( it will definitely be more than the R,,, amount they gave me today). How long do I have to make a correction if I can?
This year is the first time I had filled a return. The previous years my ex-employers did not add anything to my IRP5 and I was earning under the threshold. This year, I have tried once again and was successful. All info on IRP5 from both companies was there. I then had to fill in 2013, 2014 and 2015. My ITSA shows a refund of R9K with No verification needed. But when I look at my ITA34 for 2014 and 2015 they are asking for verification as I owe SARS. Please help in understanding this.
Hi Tim. I submitted my tax through SARS efiling. I am claiming for medical expenses not covered by Medical Aid. The amount to be paid out to me was R5 700. I then had to make a correction as I found another slip which was a lot of money, so I filed for a correction. The amount they paid out in the end, still reflected the initial amount of R5 700. What should I do?
Good day. I am not formally employed. I only do part time work via an Agency (Labour broker) which then deducts tax money before paying me, per shift, on a weekly basis. I got a IRP5 form with a total income of ZAR 350,000 for the past financial year.
Am I a temporary tax payer? Do I qualify for a tax refund?
I am receiving income from living annuity, approx R2000.00 per month and an additional R375.00 fixed amount from a retirement annuity. I also am still earning a salary over the threshold limit. I include this in my total earnings, although this is not rental, or trade related. Is this the correct procedure? I am then taxed on the full amount. I am pensionable age.
I have recently got married to a UK national and he is wanting to transfer some funds for an investment in SA. He is going to transfer the funds into my current account which I will then transfer into a unit trust.
Firstly do I need to submit a donations form they have on the SARS website and if it exceeds the R100,000 will it be liable for tax? Secondly the income from the investment will be paid monthly. If it exceeds the R23,080 annual exemption what is the rate on the excess? Is it still taxable even if it is below R70,000 per year? I have no remuneration just the investment income....
Was unfairly dismissed and at CCMA employer agreed to retrench me. I received the correct tax directive. How do I claim the legal costs incurred to fight my employer? I am unemployment but received rental income from my properties during the tax year.
Hi Tim, I have submitted my tax returns from 2010 to date but did not from 2008 and 2009 as I thought I was below the earning bracket. I called SARS now and I am due for a refund but they want my tax return for 2008 and 2009. How do I go about doing this?
Hi Taxtim. I already completed my tax return today via sars e-filing. The sars calculator shows a amount refundable to me. What I want to know is, is it correct for me to assume that I can still go ahead with this return despite of the fact that I didn't earn more than R350 000?
Also I didn't change jobs, I worked for the same company for a year and 4 months but we were franchised so I have two different IRP5's from two different cc's. Also why I really want to do it because I have a really ex...
Recently I got a bit confused on the SARS eFiling website and accidently requested a tax return for 2005 and 2010. I get very nervous when submitting tax so having seen red text saying a tax return for 2005 and 2010 are incomplete (after I requested them) I completed the tax returns however there was nothing to submit as I was still in high school in 2005 and I was a student at university in 2010.
I did serve an internship in 2009 for 7 months for which I was paid R3200 a month, howe...
I am registered a Provisional Tax payer, but I am now retired and will not earn enough to pay provisional tax any more. Do I have to de-register or can I simply stop doing provisional returns? The last one showed zero tax due.
I receive an income from two employers. R10 000 from the one, who obviously deducts PAYE and R4500 from the other, who does not deduct PAYE, as the amount falls under the threshold.
Do I have to register as a provisional tax payer or can I register at the end of the year when assessments are due? I have never registered to file a tax return before, as my income has always been exempt from having to file tax returns. This will be my first time filing a tax return.
