My son is a foreign student studying for his degree at a South African University. He has a valid Study visa and is permitted under this visa to work 20 hours per week. His employer wants to pay him a salary of R10,000 per month. Firstly does my son have to pay tax on this and if so, how does he register with SARS without a SA Identity document?
SARS want to me file all my previous tax returns in order to receive my refund for this year. In 2011 I tutored at a university and earned below the tax filing threshold and therefore did not file my tax return. How do I file my tax return now for 2012 or how do I show SARS that I didn't need to?
My husband pays the medical aid for himself and me his wife and 2 children and he claims the tax credit back for this. There is no point in him claiming additional medical tax credit for other medical out of pocket expenses as he earns too much to qualify for this. I however earn much less. Can I on my tax return claim additional medical tax credit for any medical out of pocket expenses for myself and my 2 children.
I submitted an income tax return as farming sole prop for 2016. SARS requested supporting documentation and then I uploaded an income statement.

I get paid a monthly pension from my late husband's employee benefits, on which PAYE is deducted. On the annual tax statement and the details that get sent directly to SARS, it will show the full gross pension for the year, less the PAYE paid. Why then, does the net pension amount (after PAYE) still get included in taxable income for the year? Surely I am then paying PAYE as well as another layer of income tax on the remainder, i. e.

My husband and I own property, receive interest income and are married in Community of Property. What percentage of the property income, property expenses and interest income should we each include on our Provisional tax under the total turnover and estimated taxable income respectively?
I am a monthly salaried employee and my employer deducts PAYE. However, my salary is based on an hourly rate with no fixed base, i. E. No work, no pay, and varies from month-to-month. I work 100% from home and am responsible for all work-related expenses. Can I claim a percentage of my rates and taxes, electricity and telephone?
I have some rental income that I would like to invest monthly in my fixed deposit. I know I must pay tax on both the rental income and the interest earned but when? I have to fill in a tax return twice yearly as a provisional tax payer. If the rental income and interest is fixed into the deposit account and I am not allowed to withdraw money, how would I go about paying the interest? Should I keep funds separate specifically for this in another account.
