Good day, SARS owes me money, had to go through the ombudsman to prove this, successfully did so however, SARS now requires that I prove that I actually did pay an amount I owed 2 years back before they refund me. My question is: is that even legally allowed/required of me or is it foul play from SARS? Thank you for your assistance
SARS say they upgraded their system and have now seen i did not file a tax return in 2009,2010 and have fined me for each year. Both years i was under the threshold but they are insisting i file these returns. I do not have the IRP5 anymore and the company no longer exists. They advised that I open the return on efiling and can then submit as it should have all the info, I have done this but there is no earning/medical aid information etc. How do i resolve this now as both returns are now sitting open on efiling and i am getting fined R250 per month now that i do not resubmit....
I wanted to enquire approximately how much it would cost for me to do my Tax Returns? Just an estimation. It would be just for me. Straight forward Gross Salary plus medical aid. No other claims such as commission, mileage, petrol etc.
Before paying the fee I just want to make sure you'll be able to help me. From March to July. I earned a normal salary but from August I earn a basic and commission. As I sales rep I'm able to write off wear and tear on my vehicle but obviously only from August. Same goes for my laptop etc. will your system be able to take this into account?
I am full time employed but I have earned additional income by lecturing a couple of hours during the year at a different employer. This employer did not deduct any PAYE. The employer has paid me according to the hours that I have invoiced them. Should I answer the question about whether I'm an Independent Contractor as "Yes"?
I have been working as an intern at George Municipality from 1 March to 31 December 2016 and on the 1st of January 2017 I got a permanent post,i received 2 IRP5's and on them reflects that I worked 12 months in this tax period on the old one and worked 1 month on the new post and I think it is supposed to be 10 months the old post and 2 months the new posts to make it 12 months. . . Am I wrong?
I have a pay as you go cellphone that I bought cash. Thus I unfortunately do not have monthly statements to determine an exact break between business and personal use. I spend about R300 pm on airtime and I receive a cellphone allowance of R750 pm from my employer. How do I calculate and show the depreciation amount and do I need a letter of consent if the allowance is shown on my salary slips?
I don't receive a travel allowance, but I'm on a company vehicle lease scheme. It assumes I receive fuel, which I don't. I also do business mileage and I have source code 3802 on my IRP5. What should I do?
