I was paid a retention bonus and I'm leaving the employer before the retention period. This means I now need to pay back the bonus amount. The company is deducting the bonus from my salary and leave days payout. Can I claim back the tax for the retention bonus? How do I do this?

I owed SARS money (Statement of Account Period: 2015/07/28 To 2016/01/28), I submitted a dispute, and the following is now showing. SARS Status: Please note that your tax return cannot be processed immediately due to an outstanding Tax Directive. Therefore, manual intervention is required. SARS will advise you as soon as your tax return has been assessed 2016/01/28. When I followed up this is the newest update: NOTICE OF ASSESSMENT: REDUCED ASSESSMENT 2016/02/15. The amount stated here is a negative amount/ amount with a minus infront. Do they deducted this amount from the amount I owned them, or do they owe me this amount?...
I've just got back and seen the email from SARS. I have a few questions. 1. I made a mistake on the foreign Income, as it was through the business and not my personal account. I was busy doing my business accounts while filling in my personal tax and got confused. 2. My medical aid was paid by my previous employer. They forgot to cancel my medical aid and have asked me to pay them back for that year. I received a tax certificate from my medical aid so do I still qualify to claim tax from that?
I sold a property during the 2015 year of assessment and made a significant capital gain. I also claimed an assessed loss deduction on the same property for rental losses (finance charges, levies etc) against my other income up to the date the property was sold. SARS ring fenced this loss as my total taxable income falls in the highest tax bracket. However this is only as a result of the significant capital gain I made on the same property I claimed the loss on. Is there a provision in the act t...

I am a provisional tax payer and contributing the maximum allowed deductible to an RA (15% of non-retirement funding income). I would like to know whether I can deduct this from the taxable income myself for the provisional tax payment, meaning I pay less to SARS now and do not get a refund later, or whether I should pay tax on the full income without deducting the RA deductible and then get a refund from SARS later on? If I have a choice, I would prefer not overpaying taxes to SARS and aim for ...

I foreigners start to work in South Africa & earn South African source income, say, from February 2016. Will they receive their entire tax rebate for 2016 based on only the 1 month's salary? This would imply that they will obviously NOT pay ANY taxes on a salary of up to R73,650 for the month of Feb 2016. Is this correct or should the tax rebate of R13,257 be pro-rated to 1 of 12 months, because they only worked for 1 month of the 12 in the tax year?
