Why is my home office selected for verification second year in a row?

Posted 23 July 2015

I work from my home office as a graphic designer. My annual income is under R500 000. This is the second year in a row I've been selected for verification. Any idea why and what does it mean? What should I be doing differently to prevent being flagged? Is it a reflection I'm doing something wrong?

Old Irp5 missing

Posted 19 July 2015

Hi Tim,

I have submitted my Irp5 at a SARS office which I have received June 2015. They informed me that I am being audited and that I had to submit certain documents which I did. After submitting the consultant told me that my tax return would be paid out in 3 working days. It had been more than a week so I phoned SARS to ask what is taking so long. They then informed me that because I was audited the pay out will take 30 days and also that I have an outstanding IRP5 from 2010 that I have to submit that before I can receive my tax return. ...

Posted 19 July 2015

I am somewhat panicked after receiving a "Verification of Income Tax Return" notice and a "Request for Relevant Material" notice.

Tax refund after audit taking so long

Posted 14 July 2015

Hi Tim

I submitted my Tax Return to SARS, on the 03/07/2015. On the same day I received the notification that I was yet again for a second year in a row being audited. Since it was the weekend I could only submit the required documents on the 06/07/2015.

All that they are querying is my Medical Aid Tax. ...
