Income tax calculated and then?



Hi TaxTim, I hope you can explain to me in simple terms the following. If one receives a gross salary of R20 000.00 with no contribution or allowance paid monthly, then your Income tax calculator calculates that my take home pay is R16 833.32. The R3017.95 PAYE and UIF of 148.72 is paid by my employer. Do I then have to again pay any tax on the R16 833.32 or is that done?

The PAYE is the final tax paid on that amount which your employer will withhold and pay over to SARS on your behalf.
