Hi

I just completed my tax return and my ITA34 (whatever it's called) showed an amount of R15 000 is refundable to me. Of course, SARS requested proof of documentation; I only uploaded my Retirement Tax Certificate and Medical Aid Tax Certificate - are there any other forms outstanding?

My question is: Why would I be (hopefully) receiving so much money? I started a new position (meaning higher salary and position upgrade) in September 2014 - could this have an impact?
Also, my Medical Aid contributions were R10 000 - could this affect the payment?

It can be because of your new position and the way that tax is calculated on the overall income, yet each job deducts PAYE per their income they pay you. You should have uploaded your IRP5's as well. Did you do that?
