What do you do if you have an outstanding SARS tax return for 2011 if you do not have an IRP5 for that tax year since the company you were working for cannot be found/traced? I was working on a contract basis and do not recall ever receiving an IRP5 for that year. I have submitted tax returns before and was never made aware of any outstanding tax returns. Only now that SARS needs to pay me money back do they mention that there is an outstanding tax return for 2011. How does there system work? I did my claims every year and have received money back in 2013, but the system never indicated that I have an outstanding tax return. Could you please advise.

Their system changed last year and they did not inform taxpayers about this - however unfortunately you will need to submit the ITR12 for 2011 before they will pay the refund out. If you cannot get your IRP5's for those years then you can go to the police station and swear an affidavit stating such and submit that to SARS.
