I have submitted tax returns for 2011, 2012 and 2013 to get it all up to date. 2013 was not audited and they owed me R3600. 2011 and 2012 I was also owed money, but had to submit supporting documents as they had doubled the medical aid amount for sum reason. The Status says the documents have been received but take up to 5 days to be assessed. Today I received a Refund of R600 and they took R3 000 as an Admin Penalty Fee. A bit extreme as I had received a letter saying the penalty fee would only be R500.00 (for 2011 and 2012). Question: can they pay me out the R600 and the two previous years are still being audited? I thought the audit would have to be complete first? The ITA34's received just cancel each other out and that was the same day received as I sent the documents?

It would appear then the audit has been completed for prior years and the status hasn't been updated. They never pay out until everything is finalised. When did you receive the penalty letter? The amounts are R250 per month for late submission of returns.
