I don't get a very large salary and the whole Tax thing makes me quite nervous. I have used your calculator before and it shows that I don't pay any tax. My monthly salary is R5500. 00 and only UIF gets deducted. Do I still have to do a tax return? I have no idea how this works and want to do the right thing, but am at a loss at how at this moment. Please help!!!
