Hi, Please assist. I did my tax return on SARS eFiling on the 1st of July. Not chosen for validation or audit. I have not yet received the money although online it states that the SARS STATUS is return assessed. What does this mean?

I did phone the call centre and they did not say anything about being audited or submitting supporting documents they only advised to wait. Kindly assist.

Did you receive a ITA34 after you submitted?

Yes I have received my ITA 34 which shows N for verification and auditing and the amount owed to me. Thank you for the fast reply.

The only reason refunds would be delayed is if you have outstanding tax returns or have penalties owing or if banking details need to be verified. If none of those are true then SARS should have refunded by now. Let us know on Monday if you haven't received anything yet and then we can look to assisting further.
