I submitted my tax return on 13 August 2015. I called the call centre to find out if I had any outstanding tax returns and I was told my 2012 tax return was outstanding. I informed the consultant that I had been unemployed in the 2015 tax year and he talked me through submitting a nil tax return via eFiling on 20 August 2015. How long will it take SARS to pay me my refund for the 2015 year of assessment?
I assume you mean you were unemployed in the 2012 year. If you are now up to date with your past filings, and have not received a Letter from SARS to verify your bank details, then you should receive your refund in a few days.
You can always call SARS again by the end of the month to follow up if it has not yet been received.
