Got a question you want answered about tax?

I have had 3 seperate employers for the last tax year, and I have never submitted a tax return before, so I am in desperate need of help. I have been with my current employer since January this year and they issued me my IRP5. How do I include the other 2 employers in my return considering they constitute most of my income in the last tax year?

I tried submitting my return via efiling but they required additional documentation. And also, when I logged on again, my submission form automatically had information of my previous employers without me ever filling anything out.

So now I am very confused and I need assistance with what to do next.

Did you receive IRP5s for these employers as well? If so then using the TaxTim service allows you to enter more than one IRP5 simply by answering yes to the question asking if you received another IRP5 and would like to enter in that information.

If you did not receive IRP5's from those employers, I suggest you obtain those as you want to check the information that SARS has against the information from your IRP5s.

The reason why eFiling has your previous employer information is because they have to submit it to SARS, but you should always check the information your boss gives you against that. Can I ask what other documentation was asked of you?

If you follow through with the TaxTim service and answer all the questions based on your information, you will receive your completed tax return with a step-by-step guideline how to submit this on eFiling.

Please feel free to ask any questions though or email as above and let us help out.
