I have received an email from SARS saying my income tax has been identified for verification and I must submit my supporting documents on my SARS eFiling. What are those supporting documents that I need to submit, if I don't have invoices,medical certificate or travel book. Is it the IRP5 still a supporting document?
What does tax returns include? I'm new in the employment sector and I don't really understand how this works. I know that I pay tax every month over R1000. Last year I was also taxed for a seasonal job I did as a student, being an exam assistant for the department of education in the eastern cape and I was told I can claim back my tax, how do I go about doing that? I am just interested in knowing how to claim tax back.
I was overseas studying for tax years 2010 and 2011 and therefore didn't have IRP5s for those tax years. However, I did have income in the form of rental income but for both years I made massive losses due to expenses, high interest rates, bad debts etc. Does the lack of IRP5 automatically disqualify me from any refund due to me by SARS?
Myself and the wife ( non-residents / Irish citizens and tax payers) bought a property in South Africa in both our names. Does the R 65 000 tax exemption apply to each of us individually? The combined rental income is R 120 000 after expenses/deductions. We plan to invest the rental income in a flexible money market account at 5,75%. If the exemption applies to both i. O. W R 130 000 combined, do we have to register for tax? Can flight tickets once in two years to oversee maintenance and i...
Hi Tim, I am a Commission earner and I claim back on my vehicle usage on depreciation and logbook. When I claim back on my car usage, I keep a logbook as well. But my question is, can I claim back on a paid up vehicle? or do I have to still be paying monthly towards finance. Does the finance amount help with increase my tax return from SARS. Eg if im paying R2500 or R2000. Which will yield a higher tax return?
I recently submitted my tax return and have a refund due to me. I emailed SARS and asked how come I have received my refund and they say that I have not submitted my 2011 tax return. I only worked for 4 months in that tax year and earned way below the threshold. Also in previous years they have refunded me without asking me to submit the 2011 tax return. What I would like to know and am afraid of is, if I submit the 2011 tax return now will I not incur penalties and interest?
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 still pay provisional tax and submit that tax return dutifully. I read that I must swear an affidavit at a police station but I am currently not in the country and won't be back for several months - they need these supporting documents in 21 days. What must I do? (I did email them, asking them what to do, but they ...
I submitted tax return (ITR12) for year 2013-2014 via SARS SARS eFiling and calculator shows that amount is -18K. But ITA34 Notice of Assessment show "0" amount as net payable.

Why ITA34 says "Net amount payable under this assessment after allowable credits Compliance information:0. 00"???? Please help me to understand this.

We run a small hair salon from home for my wife, she does business as a sole-proprietor and the salon is her sole income source. I understand that we can deduct for ease of explanation 10% (amount of space occupied by the salon in relation to the whole property) from all rates and taxes, electricity etc. I am unsure about the interest/rent piece. Can the salon pay "rent" or can you just subtract 10% of the interest on the bond as business expense (bond is in my name). I've also read that deducting this piece as a business expense now can influence your Capital Gains Tax waiver amount when selling the property later on, is this the case?...
Dear sir/madam. During March-June 2013 I was employed on a fixed term contact while I was studying. I had no other employment for that year. My cost to company was R12000, without any benefits. I did pay PAYE for that period. Can I still submit a tax return for that tax period in the present day? Will there be any fees or fines for this?
If I am currently paying a finance lease for a vehicle and then subsequently decide to request a settlement figure from the bank and pay the remainder of the finance debt off to the bank can I claim the lump sum settlement as a deduction for tax purposes?
Only income earned is investment income thus interest on savings in bank account. Do you deduct the interest exemption of R23800 plus R70700 from the total to establish income e. G R96000 interest income - R23800 - R70700 = R1500 multiply by 18 % taxes due R270
When calculating the Rand value of foreign dividends to be included into taxable income under s1, what exchange rate must be used if the dividends accrued over a period of a year? If I received 83.69 pounds over the year of assessment, is the amount converted to Rands at the average exchange rate over the year or at the exchange rate present on the 28th of February? The Act doesn't provide any clarity on this.
My husband and I are over 75 and because of his health problems have sold our home and bought in a Retirement Estate with Frail care. Our son, has donated R500,000 towards the cost of the unit. He is not resident in S. A. So will not be liable for tax but we have been advised that, he can donate annually, an amount of R100,000 which in 5 years will cover the original amount. Is this correct? We do not pay income tax as our only income is through interest on investments and a small pension receiv...
My employer does deduct monthly tax from my salary. My income is not more than R250000 a year. I have no other income that I earned or interest rates or dividends I earned. Do I still have to do SARS eFiling? Thank you
Over the past three weeks, I have been in contact with SARS telephonically regarding a refund due to me for the 2015 Tax Year. I have just been informed that SARS has upgraded their system and I now need to submit a Tax Return for 2008 before they will pay the refund. In 2007, I was employed on a part time basis as a tutor whilst I was in my final year of study at University. After graduating in 2007, I started to work on a full time basis at a company from 1 January 2008. I...
