My previous employer refuses to provide me with my 2013 IRP5, which resulted into me paying an penalty amount. I was told that I should provide SARS with an sworn affidavit to prove that one cannot produce the document they requested. Is that true? I would also like to know if you provide SARS with the affidavit, do you still need to pay the penalty amount?
No you can have the penalty reversed. It is true about the affidavit, what is your employer's excuse in this regard?

No reason, they just failed to provide me with a copy of my IRP5 2013 which I asked for on numerous occasions telephonically and via email from early December 2015 to date. If I provide SARS with an affidavit will the penalty amount be reversed automatically or will there be some sort of investigation?

When you give the them affidavit they will reassess and and reverse the penalty.
