What will happen if I already accepted my auto assessment, but I have done so without submitting my travel logbook, am I able to fix this myself, what should I do? Am I correct in saying that I would need to request some sort of correction on eFiling and how would I go about doing this? How and where on the eFiling system should I go to get the request for correction?

If you accept the auto-assessment and you omitted to submit logbook claims for business kilometres against travel allowances, yes you will be able to correct it, you can use the Request Correction facility on SARS eFiling and resubmit the tax return with the full information. Log into SARS eFiling and navigate to your submitted tax return which you want to correct, by going to Returns - Returns History - Personal Income Tax (ITR12) - click on open. Under the link to your tax return, there will be a button called Request Correction. This will issue a second version of your tax return which will already be populated with the same amounts as the original one you submitted. You can change this version and then re-submit. Kindly also have your Qualifying logbook ready as SARS most likely will request supporting documents. You can have a look at our Travel audits blog for more information on what information must be available on the logbook to qualify. Alternatively please complete your full return via TaxTim so that we may include the logbook information and also double-check if there is no other information that is missing.
