Hi Tim

I did my tax on the 03/07/2014 on eFiling, I submitted all forms needed for the IRP5. This is my first year doing taxes, what I don't understand is that they asked me for more documentation on Monday requesting my Medical Tax certificate, Claims history and my original IRP5 from my company. Am I being audited? Or do they just need supporting documents for the information from my IRP5 form? The only problem is that when I go on my eFiling, the messages keeps saying.... It has been received but has not been assessed yet. It will take five days to process? It has been 6 days since I did the eFiling, since it is my first time, I am a little bit confused by all this and would appreciate feedback.

SARS are having issues with their systems so refunds are taking some time. The verification is often random and is just SARS' way of checking that all is in order, it happens to about 1/4 people and there is nothing to worry about.
