Hi Tim

I submitted my tax returns via SARS efiling on the 22nd of July and they asked for supporting documents. I submitted my IRP5 and Medical Aid Tax certificate on the 23rd of July. On my profile it says my documents have been converted....does that mean they have been received? How long till I get my refund? I read on your site that SARS was doing things faster this time around.

PS Thanks for a very informative site, it made my efiling a lot easier.

Only a pleasure!

It can take anywhere from a few days to 30 days to 9 months. Unfortunately SARS does not give a time frame for this stage of the submission process, but they have been performing a good job of turning verification assessments around in 7 days or so. If you have not received a completion letter by Thursday morning I would contact 0800 00 7277 in order to see at what stage your audit is.

Best advice is to be patient and when you receive that SMS you will be positively surprised!
