I am doing some admin work from home and have been paying Provisional Tax for the last 3-4 years. Twice a year someone has been doing my tax return via eFiling for me. I realize now that I don't earn enough to even complete a tax return. To be on the safe side I want to complete a nil return but am not sure how to do it. I don't want to ask the same lady to do the nil return for me because she will charge me . I would like to know how to do it myself because it is now due.
The last time I received some money for word done was in Ocober 2014. It seems as though I will not be receiving any more income

If you earned in income up to October 2014 then you will need to file a completed return for the period 1 March 2014 - 28th February 2015 as tax may need to be paid for this period. You cannot file a nil return, how much income did you earn in this period.

I am registered as a Provisional Tax payer. My income was R45 000 from 1 March 2014 - 28 Feb 2015. I work for myself. and my income is less thean R250 000 per year. Is it not true that I don't need to complete a return? Or have I got it wrong? Thanks

The R250 000 threshold is for people working for one employer and earning a simple salary with no benefits, not other income and no other deductions. So you should still file, however you will not need to pay any tax.
