Tax Threshold 2013/14 (for income earned as interest)?

Posted 1 March 2013

The tax threshold is R 67111.00. My sole income is R 67110.00 from interest on cash in the bank, one rand less than the tax threshold. I am under the tax threshold, but the income is not active (from work), it is passive(from interest), do I still have to pay tax ?

There is a confusing/conflicting tax break of R 23800.00 for income earned as interest ??
R 23800.00 still falls under the total tax threshold of R 67111.00
Can you elaborate please.

Posted 24 February 2013

I completed my degree at the end of 2012 and started interning for an advertising company from Nov 2013 till the end of Feb 2013.

Now they will be employing me on a 6month contract between April and September and I will be getting between R5000 or R5600, contract details have not been discussed yet. But would I have to register as a tax payer if I get the R5000 as I woud be earning less than R5300 or would the fact that it is in the middle of the tax year exempt me from this? How do I go about finding out about SARS things as their website is confusing, I know nothing about these legal things and I'm scared to get caught up like Wesley Snipes... :(...
