Hi there,

Im looking to buy property later this year and my girlfriend says I need to start filling in tax returns. I have never done this before, always been sort of under the radar, but now starting to worry that I might get into some sort of trouble.

I do have a tax number, pay UIF and PAYE which all comes off my salary and I get my IRP5 forms yearly. I will be subscribing to TAXTIM to assist me from now on, but what if I somehow owe SARS a stack of money for never ever filling in the returns?

Please advise.

Bob

You may be penalised for non-submission of returns. To check if you have been penalised you will need to register on the SARS eFiling website and click on the Returns Tab at the top of the page, then on the left side click on the "SARS correspondence" tab and click "Request Historic Notices" then select "Statement of Account" for the entire period you have been registered. You will be able to check if you owe SARS anything on this document.
