I submitted my 2016 tax return using my actual cost on my travel expenses. How can I have it changed to fixed cost as my business travel was about 16000km whilst my actual cost was only R399.00? My tax return was audited by SARS and I've disputed on these grounds several times as well as gone to SARS twice.

I had freelance jobs and although I don't own my own business/am not registered as a business. All but one of the freelance jobs were taxed. Should I register as a provisional tax payer? If so, how do I go about doing this and what deductions can I make? e.g. Can I claim for Uber trips, cellphone bills, wear and tear on my equipment (computer, camera) etc? If I can claim for things like this, how do I go about doing it?
SARS has audited me and it was found that I owe them money. My tax is a mess and I'm wondering if it can get sorted out. I barely receive any money back from SARS. Something seems to be wrong with my tax returns.
