Good day,

I have submitted my tax return and SARS owes me a refund. About 4 days has passed so I contacted SARS and asked them what the reason is why my refund is being held back, they told me it is because I have not submitted my 2012 tax return, so I did. After I submitted my return for 2012 as well, I contacted them again and inquired if there is anything else that they need from me in order for me to receive my refund and they said no that everything is in order and that there is nothing holding back my refund. What I would like to know is approximately how long it will take for them to repay me?

SARS are doing this quite a lot this year it sees, it should take a further 7 days or so. Please let us know if you have not received your refund by the end of the week.
