I got a sms from SARS reviewing discrepancies identified between 3rd party (TaxTim) and my last Income Tax tax return. Also they are advising me that I should ensure that the information is captured correctly. My information is captured by Sanlam and assume it is correct. Please advise what the discrepancy could be? And why do they mention the word "discrepancy"?

That is a message sent out to various taxpayers in preparation of the auto assessments they are going to run from next month.

This message is to remind taxpayers to ensure that their personal details on SARS eFiling is correct and that they need to ensure that they need to submit their 2020 tax with accurate and correct figures.

As for making use of the word discrepancy, we cannot comment on the wording that they chose for the notification which they have send out. We hope this helps
