If your wife earns under the threshold she would not need to submit a tax return, however it may be wise to do so given you are married in community of property and would have to give her name on your return.

2 more things.
I had a tenant last year that did not pay for about 10 months, is this a debt that was incurred?
Do I record it, and the lawyers fees for eviction?

You can write off the lawyers fees as it is a cost incurred in legal fees related to income lost or potentially losing. It is not a debt incurred unless you have already declared the income to SARS?
