Can I submit receipts after SARS has already done my tax for 2015?

Posted 6 October 2015

I went to SARS and they did my 2015 tax. They said they owe me some money. But what I would like to know is can I submit my medical receipts and RA tax certificate still? I forgot to take it with me and submit them. Is it too late?

Battling to get 2008 IRP5 certificate from ex-employer.

Posted 1 October 2015

I am battling to get my IRP5 certificate for 2008 from an ex-employer and SARS is asking for it. At the time I did not submit the tax return because I recall that in that particular year if you earned under a certain annual income, you did not have to submit and therefore I did not. How can I remedy the situation? I have called SARS SARS eFiling help desk and we tried to see if the information would populate on SARS eFiling but it did not.

Statement of Tax invoicing

Posted 28 September 2015

Hi, I submitted a tax return via SARS eFiling which tax returned an assessment that I owe SARS R2500. Puzzled by this I asked a friend and she advised that I had entered the number of dependents for Medical Aid incorrectly. I filed a correction and SARS now owes me R2700. The statement, however reflects an amount of R200 and reflects the incorrect R2500. Surely that shouldn't count or am I missing something?

I called SARS and was told they focus only on the original assessment. I am ...

Posted 27 September 2015

SARS is asking for supporting documents related to my tax return but I have been unemployed and living abroad for three years! I don't have any of the documents they are requesting.

(I did email them, asking them what to do, but they ...

Could I claim all contributions and additonal medical costs for a dependant parent of 73?

Posted 23 September 2015

This question is about medical tax credits. I am a 73 year old pensioner. I thought that if I was a dependant on my son's Discovery medical aid, then he could claim form his tax the full contribution for me (being over 65) and also any additional medical costs I incur which are not covered by the medical aid (the full amount). Am I correct?
And I will tell my sons about this terrific service. Thanks

Posted 3 September 2015

In my 2014 tax return I submitted all sorts of forms proving that my daughter is dyslexic and has to attend an expensive school which accommodates her learning disability.

Posted 3 September 2015

I pay for my own medical aid for myself and 3 dependants. I also pay for my pensioner mum and disabled brothers medical aid.
