Only worked for 2 months in the tax year - do I get tax back?



I started working in South Africa at the end of the 2011-2012 tax year (started Jan 2012). As this was my only earning during the tax year will i get this tax back?

If you earned more than the tax threshold when the months were multiplied by 12 then you will get some of the tax back that you paid.
