Hi, I have started receiving my tax documents from my bank and medical aid etc. I am still waiting for the one form my RA provider. Must I wait for all of them and then once all are received, how do I go about completing my tax return?
I will be claiming tax back on travel for business use for the first time. I have maintained a logbook since starting my new job in the middle of the current tax year 2015/16. Please advise what the "fixed cost" is, and how I can calculate what tax rebate I should expect to receive from SARS in July.
My companion and I have been living together for many years however we are not married. He recently sold his house and the money was used in purchasing another house but in my name and not his. Will I have to pay tax on that money? We are both pensioners. I have also had to draw money from my investments to pay for the shortfall as the house I bought cost more than the amount received from selling his house.
I received two IRP5. The second is for the Lump Sum I received after retrenchment, however no tax was deducted. I tax directive number was provided. Should I enter the information as well when submitting my tax?

I am an independent contractor. I do not earn any salary. I currently have a vehicle on which I claim a travel deduction. My vehicle requires replacement. I would like to know if I can claim lease payments as a tax deductible expense should I lease a new car. I have not come across any prohibition on the SARS website. This surely is in the production of income as without a car I would not be able to carry out any work at all.
I am currently an independent consultant, however at the moment 80% of my income does come from a single client. This is because I have not yet found more clients. I am not sure if I am to be treated as an employee based on what I have found out so far. I would strongly prefer (for client and me) to be treated as an independent consultant for tax purposes. Can I register for provisional tax as an independent consultant?
