Posted 2 July 2014

I just got an email from SARS that said unless I earn over R350 000 a year I don't have to submit a tax return this year.

Is this correct? Wasn't the income threshold a LOT lower last year, like R70,000? My income certainly doesn't exceed R350000 per year, but I still want to declare my expenses like medical and get my refund. Must I still submit below the threshold?

Confused over SOA for SARS

Posted 2 July 2014

I submitted my tax return 01/07/2014 and there was a negative balance of R7752.11 which meant a refund is due to me. The only part I added was my medical expenses that I pay myself every month. I am a strictly commission earner as well. Today I receive my assessed IT34 and it says Statement of account assessment -7752.11 and then Refunds 7752.11. Balance 0. What does this mean? Am I not due anything back?
