If you have never filed for a tax return before, how do you go about checking if there are funds owed to you at SARS? I would like to start filing my tax return for this year as I have been unemployed for a long period, but now I am back in the workforce.

If no tax returns were submitted in the past your statement of account will reflect as nil.
You can use our Tax refund calculator to calculate if you are due a refund or if you would be required to make payment to SARS.
Please refer to our following blogs & decision trees for more information: Do I need to file a tax return? & Reasons you need to file your tax return.
Please note that you will need to submit your tax returns to receive a refund (if applicable).
If you do not submit required tax returns to SARS, SARS may raise admin penalties per outstanding tax return per month.
