The tax you pay should be reflected on your payslip from your employer. Please check our SARS income tax calculator to see tax that should be deducted. You should also receive an IRP5 from your employer that will reflect the tax you have paid.

Click on the link in my earlier email and there is an explanation for IRP5. It should be sent by your employer to you soon. You can always follow up with them for it too.
