I received a verification letter from SARS and I called the call centre. They said my audit has been completed and I was told that my refund will take 21 working days and it might be selected for another audit. How true is this statement? Please assist Tim, 21 more days is a long way to go.

It is true unfortunately, SARS are able to take 21 days for most of their operation, if your audit was completed and the refund audited then it should not be selected for audit again.
