I receive a monthly pension from my late husband. I have submitted my SARS and I have to pay in a large amount back to SARS. I have spoken to SARS as well as GEPF and the advice I received was to apply to Department Finance to over tax me to avoid this situation again. I don't know how, where and to whom I must speak to adjust my tax. Thanks

You would need to speak to a fund administrator at the GEPF - so perhaps start with the payroll officer of your late husbands department. They can then apply for a tax directive to withhold a larger tax amount which would then help you avoid this situation in the future.
