Help me to get my old IRP5 forms

Posted 25 August 2015

How do I get my old IRP5 from department of health I was working in government hospital in Boksburg?

Should I correct my IRP5 myself or submit it as received?

Posted 25 August 2015

My employer loaded code 4005 as the amount that I contributed, and code 3810 the amount that the employer contributed. I thought code 4005 is supposed to be the total amount that goes to the medical aid or am I wrong?
The sum of the two amounts was then loaded to codes 4116 and 4497. I believe this is another mistake. Should I correct it myself or submit it as received?
