Can I get a Tax Number online without going to a SARS office?



Yes you can. Simply register on eFiling and if you do not yet have a personal income tax number, SARS will automatically register you and issue a tax reference number. You are required to have a valid South African ID. For more information see the step by step guide to register for eFiling and register for Personal Income Tax automatically.
