Please contact 0800 00 7277 in order to retrieve your username and password.  You can also obtain your eFiling username and password by going to the SARS website www.sarsefiling.co.za and clicking on forgot username or forgot password and then enter your ID or Passport number and contact details and lastly your tax reference number.  Should you not have your tax reference number, you can go to the www.sars.gov.za website and click on contact us and select request your tax number under the send us a query heading. You'll need to enter your current contact details, ID number and a landline number.  If none of these options work and you have not called SARS yet, it might be the only way to get a person to speak to you at SARS or you can request a call back on the same page you requested your tax number, you might have to wait a day or two, but they will call you.
