Is it worth asking for copies of the IRP5's if they were provided to SARS by the employers/investment houses already?

Since all three were provided directly to SARS and have pre-populated the e-filing, I did not receive my own copies. If SARS decides to audit my tax return would I need to request them or would SARS be satisfied that they actually already have these?

No, you would have to request copies and submit them to SARS only if audited.
