I did not receive an IRP5 as I am an a independent contractor/consultant. All my income was derived through consulting work. Tax Tim is now saying that I need information from my IRP5 or there is a conflict. I am a provisional tax payer and yet the amount I paid in as provisional tax is never requested?

Click no to the IRP5 section of the tax return. Are you trying to complete the travel allowance section of the tax return?

No I am not claiming a travel allowance.

Your depreciation and Home Office Expenditure needs to go under the Business Income section of the tax return - the reason it is asking for an IRP5 is because those Tax Deduction sections you are completing relates to independent contractors who receive IRP5's from the different jobs they perform.
