Extra Tax deducted

I recently underwent a Tax audit last year as I haven't regularly paid taxes for a few years. SARS did the audit and siad they owed me x ammount but I also owed the y ammount. They paid out the x ammount deducting their Y ammount from the balance and all was good. The end of last year and the this year they all of a sudden started deducting R1600 off my salary for some special tax owed.This was for about six to eight months of deductions I have just been to see them to submit this years Tax form but they were unable to clarify why an extra Tax was deducted off my salary for about six to eight months. What could this additional tax be for as I have a permenant job and been with the same comapny fo 17 years or so As far as I know all taxes were paid Why the sudden extra taxes on my salary.?

So they gave no explanation at all for the deduction? Speak to your payroll administrator because they would have received the request from SARS for the deduction and should have the reason on the request.
