As of July 2013 SARS declared it illegal for anyone other than a registered tax practitioner to assist people with doing their tax returns. Unless the person you know is a tax practitioner, them doing your tax return can lead to trouble for both of you.
This year try TaxTim - our service offers the knowledge and expertise of a trained tax professional, with an easy-to-use friendly interface.

A South African taxpayer can donate up to R100 000 per tax year and not have to pay any Donations Tax. Any amount over that will incur a donations tax of 20% which she will have to pay over to SARS. This would be the case if your mother was donating money to anyone else in a tax year in addition to the R100,000 gift she is giving you.
You should declare on your Tax Return (ITR12) that you received a donation under the "Amounts not considered taxable" section.
I am assuming here that your mother is a South African tax resident. If she is not, then donations tax does not apply at all on donations from non-residents to SA residents.
Please register for TaxTim and let us assist you to complete and submit your Tax Return to SARS.
