Thank you for filing your 2012 tax return Assessment Result: R-168 Account Balance: R-72 Selected for Audit: No

This means that for the 2012 year you are due a refund of R168, but due to previous year's results the actual balance owed to you is R72. SARS does not pay out refunds for less than R100 so this is going to carry forward to next year.
