SARS sent me an SMS saying I have R80,900 in tax arrears. Although I'm registered as a provisional taxpayer, I also paid PAYE through my employer of R39,010.89, and then an additional payment of R44,000.00 three months ago (as am married in C.O.P. and my wife has an annuity income). Can you advise me how to go about finding out why they say I owe so much? I'm freaked out as I simply can't pay.
If you are registered on eFiling, then click on the Returns page and then click on the "SARS correspondence" tab on the left hand side panel. Click on the "historic IT notices" then click request Statement of Account. Then select the period you wish to look at and it should state what the amounts are for.
