SARS has asked my wife to do her tax returns for the last 6 years (2008-2015). We have managed to get all the tax returns sorted expect for one IRP5 in 2009. She worked at two companies and has only one IRP5. We managed to get hold of the company she worked for, which is now closed, the family emigrated. They have an IRP5 from 2008, but they cannot find the IRP5 for 2009. They don't have it on any records. What are our options regarding the situation. I did a refresh on the SARS eFiling and nothing was pre-populated. I assume SARS has this information because we received a letter stating the following "For source code 4101, a SITE Credit of R1,025. 00 has been assessed against your ITR12 tax return. For source code 4102, a PAYE Credit of R326. 35 has been assessed against your ITR12 tax return".
You can go to your local police station and Swear an affidavit stating reasons why you are unable to obtain this IRP5. You can take this to SARS together with any payslips or bank statements you may have for this year which would justify the income earned.
