Hi there, my mom has not worked in 7 years and her partner has passed away. She is due a payout from the accident fund at his employer. They are insisting she needs a tax number to process any payment to her. How do you register to get a tax number when you have no income or job?

So you can apply for a tax number when not employed by anyone as there is a section that asks for employees details? Do you know how long it takes to get a tax number?

You would leave that out. If you do it at SARS it would be given to you right away.
