Will I be penalized for not filling in a tax return for last year and this current year

I have been working for 2 years now, I started 3 December 2013 and I never filled in a tax return before. I only became a permanent employee 1 April 2015 and only then started contributing towards a medical aid and pension fund. I have missed the 27/11/2015 tax return deadline. I am not sure how this whole process works. Will I be penalized for not filling in a tax return for last year and this current year. I will be more than happy to pay for your services. Regards

Medical rebate not given by SARS

My company paid medical premium for me for the period 1st Mar 2014 to Feb 2015. For first half of the year it was with one medical vendor and then for the second year it was with a another medical vendor. I filed my IT tax returns on time. I got an additional assessment wherein SARS has not taken one medical vendor and I stand to lose out around R5000. How should I dispute and in the notice of objection form where do I fill the exact details as it is asking for source code?

Why is it taking so long to receive the pay out, is there something I missed ?

I submitted my tax return via SARS eFiling and received the ITA34 - and notifications saying that SARS owes me. I submitted the tax return on the 25th. People have been saying it takes between 2-3 days to receive a pay out and SARS sends a sms or email to say when the money will be paid. How come I have not heard anything yet?

No IRP5 on liquidated company

The company my wife has worked for has been liquidated in September 2014. She has worked for them form January 2014 until September 2014.

I am a commission earner and earned R 486 342 but my tax assessment states that I owe SARS R2327719

I am an estate agent, I've submit my tax returns and have received a shocking assessment of R2,327,719. 96
I earned R486 342,00 in commission from selling property. I suspect I might have made an error where I was asked about turnover and I put the value of the properties that I sold which is about R7,000,000 and am afraid SARS wants to tax me on that whereas I only received and average commission of about 5%. Kindly advise how I rectify this.

Provisional Tax Payer and not a Individual

I'm about to do my first tax return, I'm registered as Individual tax payer but have been doing freelance work on an invoice basis. I did not realise that in this case I would need to be registered as a provisional tax payer instead. Am I correct in saying that I should be registered as a provisional tax payer?

How do I proceed from here?
- I should have done two IRP6's and made payments. - Then I should also do a ITR12, which is then only due in January 2016
What do I do regarding the outstanding IRP6's?...
