In 2012 I was paying PAYE, I got an IRP5 from work but did nothing with it as I didn't know what it really was. Then in February 2013 they raised the threshold and I no longer earn enough to pay tax. Should I still fill in a tax return for 2012? Will they charge me late fees for this?

If you only worked for the one employer and had not medical deductions or similar and only received employment income of less than R120 000 then you didn't need to complete a tax return. The thresholds were only raised from the next tax year beginning 1 March 2013. This is for the 2014 tax year.
