Being audited just means that SARS could be doing a random selection and checking that all the information submitted is the same as they have. It may not be specific to you, but part of a selection of taxpayers.

You don't need to worry about it unless something was deliberately entered incorrectly. However if that isn't the case then being audited won't reflect negatively on you at all.
