This is a great site, thank for all the effort you put in to helping others. My question is as follows:
I completed my 2013 return. I was then selected for random audit, and submitted the required documents. However my 2009 documents were submitted for my 2013 return (long story!). This resulted in me owing SARS R3,500. I requested a correction, which was done, and my corrected 2013 return reflects that SARS owes me a refund of R1,600. However, the erroneous R3,500 refund figure is still reflected on my statement of account. So SARS is requesting that I pay the remaining balance of R3,500-R1,600.
My question is, how do I remove/delete the incorrect 2013 assessment which should not be taken into account at all, and certainly shouldn't reflect on the statement?
That R3 500 should have been removed and only the second amount reflected as your true assessment. You cannot remove items, you will have to lodge a dispute, however I would suggest calling 0800 00 7277 and speaking with a SARS agent first before going to the cost of filing an objection.
