I lost my job 5 years ago, but I get part time work now and then. I have just filed for this year and average about R15k for the year. But am now being made to panic saying I earned too low and SARS will question this. But what are you supposed to do if that is what you got. I see that you mention we should only pay taxes when we earn a certain amount per year, however the part time work I do never gets me that high, BUT the company I do the work for is an NPO and stated they by law have to take 25% from me each time I earn from them. Yes, I claim it back, but what is the point if now you get questioned for earning too little as well? Should I be getting taxed at all? Please advise. Thanks Allan
The rules for paying tax and withholding them are different - so they have to keep 25%, but as you say you can claim it back. Continue submitting to SARS as it is always best to be fully compliant, but you have nothing to worry about in terms of paying tax as you seemingly earn below the threshold.
