I'm new to the tax paying thing, and want to know, I have just started working earning R17000 and want to know what taxes my work should be paying and what I have to pay or submit or.... with the help of Tim of course :-)
Your employer will withhold PAYE and UIF and pay this over to SARS and the Department of Labour on your behalf. They will issue you with a document called an IRP5 next year around June which is a summary of your payslips for the current tax year which runs from March to February each year. You will need to file a tax return once tax filing season opens next year July for the 2014 tax year (March 12 - Feb 2014) so you don't need to do anything just yet!
