I get a R5000 bonus every three months.. It started recently and is performance based.. Would I get taxed a ridiculous amount on this? They pay it with my salary.

The bonus would be added to your salary and included in your gross taxable income.

Please use our Income Tax Calculator to work out how much tax you will pay SARS for the year. You need to add your quarterly bonus (multiplied by 4) to your monthly salary (multiplied by 12) and include in the gross salary box (representing annual salary).
