My provisional tax paid to date totals more than my provisional earnings for tax year 2015.

Posted 17 August 2015

I have successfully completed my tax returns via SARS eFiling for several years. Reason for registering with your website is to get further advice on my provisional tax submissions (2015-1 / 2015-2) already made) and support with my salaried tax submission for 2015. I have already paid SARS two amounts totalling more than my provisional earnings for tax year 2015. So.. It's imperative that if I have overpaid SARS that I get this back when filing my tax return for 2015.

First provisional tax payment - estimate

Posted 7 August 2015

Hi. My wife earned investment income and a salary last year. This year, she's now stayed at home with our daughter, and thus hasn't earned a salary - thus significantly less taxable income.
