Hi, Nedbank has posted me my IT3(b) Form and I see it has changed from last year, they now have an amount under 'Net Amount Accrued' which is added to the 'Net Amount Paid' to give total 'Interest' earned. My question is : What amount do I have to declare to SARS, is it the Net Amount Paid (which is what Nedbank has actually paid to me in the tax year ending 28/02/2014 or do I have to declare the total Interest which includes the 'Net Amount Accrued' that Nedbank has not paid tome yet.
Dear Tim,I hope you can help I am really at wits' end right now with SARS. This is the situation. I subimitted my tax return via the efiling website on the 01/07/14.

Hi I submitted my tax to SARS and they asked for supporting documents, so me been me I only submitted half the documents, now I can?%u20AC%u2122t upload anymore, it is greyed out! In the meantime I realized that I made a mistake, so I requested correction and submitted ITR12 again. Now on my new ITA34 (top right corner) it says that I owe SARS money, but down the bottom it says that I am due a refund. Will they now disregard the first one and work on the second ITR12 or do I still have to submit...
I resigned from my job late last year. Upon resignation, I transferred my pension fund savings into a preservation fund with the same company that held my pension fund. My tax return shows the entire amount of my pension fund as income under source code 3920 - Lump Sum Benefit. Why is this declared as income when I have not received the money? Does this mean I will be taxed on my preservation of my pension fund savings?
My last employer has not submitted an IRP5 , and after calling today am getting the run around and same old story "were getting it " .. now.. its only for a 2 month period of work to a gross Value of R40k earned. The remainder of my return is ready and set to go. Can I file? Also, what would happen if the mystery IRP5 should appear in a week or so???
My mother is 74 years and does not work nor contribute to an annuity. She receives interest at Investec, Finbond, Absa Moneymarket and Satrix. She received only IT3b and 3c's. No IRP5 or IT3a. Father passed away January 2014 and she only received pension since March 2014. Incurred medical expenses. Where do I ad the IT3b and 3c information on ITR12?
Regarding the residency question - If you earn interest(South African source) with no other income, spend more than 183 days out of the country, will that interest be subject to tax. Lets assume the interest earned is R250 000 for the year. If this isn't tax free, would the opposite be true where by the interest is from a foreign source yet you are resident in SA but do spend more than 183 days out of the country.
My Mother-in-law is a SASSA Old Age Grant recipient, she also earns a very small pension from her late husband's pension fund. Her medical expenses uses up almost half of her income. Can she obtain a IRP5 for her state pension as well as the other small income and then submit a ITR12 form through eFiling? If so, where can she obtain a IRP5 for her SASSA grant?
I am employed and earn a regular salary from my employer. BUT I also run a small business (just me as Sole Prop) on the side. (I help people with Web development and design work)How does tax work in my case? Do I need to put away a percentage of each transanction and pay it manually each year or how does it work? I don't want to get into any trouble with the tax man :-)
I invested (in the form of a loan account) in a start up private company as a shareholder at the end of 2004. I have been receiving monthly income from the company since mid 2013 as repayment of the original loan account plus annual interest. How do I account for these repayments in my tax return and am I liable for tax on these repayments of the loan account?
