Got a question you want answered about tax?

I have worked out of the country last year for more than 183 days and 60 days continuous.
We do not do this every year, so my employer did not enter the tax code under (Reason for Non deduction of employees tax) (4150) . They said it is to difficult now to change it.

What will I be able to do, to get this fixed, it will probably only be for one last year. Should I go to the Tax office and try to explain?

Thanks

You can include the amounts under "other deductions" there is a block there for amounts earned in respect of s10(1)(o)(ii) - however SARS will ask for proof of this which you will need from your employer and your passport showing you going in and out of the country.

See this link: Can I claim a portion of my foreign income as exempt?

I only get paid my monthly salary in SA, if I work in SA or not.
I would like to claim back all the TAX for the months I went out of SA. This is only a once off thing, I do not meet the requirements each year, so I do not want to make any major changes to my IRP5, that will affect me next year, when I do not make the requirements.

Do I need to get a letter from my employer to show that I only get paid in SA and that I do not receive any foreign income? I should be able to get back all the TAX of last year right?

I have proof of my dates in my passport.

Thanks

It does not matter where you get paid, but the period you get paid for. Ideally your employer has to include the relevant exempt income on your IRP5. In your case you would have to do it yourself. If you do it for the current year it won't affect your future ITR12 tax returns.
