SARS eFiling Tax Practitioner Auto-assessment New to tax


Statement of Tax invoicing

Hi, I submitted a tax return via SARS eFiling which tax returned an assessment that I owe SARS R2500. Puzzled by this I asked a friend and she advised that I had entered the number of dependents for Medical Aid incorrectly. I filed a correction and SARS now owes me R2700. The statement, however reflects an amount of R200 and reflects the incorrect R2500. Surely that shouldn't count or am I missing something?

I called SARS and was told they focus only on the original assessment. I am confused, please help.

The Statement of Account will reflect the final balance due which sounds like it is a R200 refund to you.
SARS doesn't reverse the first assessment when it issues a revised one; you therefore need to add the two together to get to the final balance due. (-R2500 R2700= R200)
