You will need to register for SARS efiling to complete and submit your annual tax return to see if SARS owes you a refund.  Taxpayers only receive a tax refund if they paid too much tax during the tax year. (1 March to 28 February) It is important to submit your tax return even if you earn below the threshold, for more information see our blog on Reasons you need to file your tax return If you are unsure which tax returns are outstanding, please request a statement of account on your SARS efiling profile to show you which years must be submitted.  If you are not already registered on SARS efiling please see our How to register for sars efiling blog for a step by step process.  Alternatively, you can use our tax refund calculator in order to check if you are due a refund by using the information provided on your IRP5.
