Tax return assessment results - what does this mean?

I have received this SMS from SARS:

"Thank you for filing your 2011 tax return Assessment Result: R0 Account Balance: R-2574 Selected for Audit: No"

What does it mean?

This means that you are due a refund from SARS and will be paid out shortly.

Good day Tim

Sorry to bother you again I received another SMS:

"Thank you for filing your 2012 tax return Assessment Result: R-2074 Account Balance: R-2074 Selected for Audit: No"

This one is for 2012, does it mean I'm due for a refund again?

Yes, if SARS has already paid your amount from 2011 then you will be due another refund of the R2 074 as well!
