When will 'supporting documents' section appear?

I have submitted my tax return via efiling on the 1st of July and immediately received an email saying I need to submit supporting documents. The problem is the section on my efiling profile which allows me to upload these is not showing there yet, now 24 hours later. Is this normal? How long should I wait?Thank you for this blog! Very helpful for a first time tax payer!

Our pleasure, happy you found our blog useful!

SARS are having issues at the moment as their systems keep overloading. Wait a few days to submit your documents just to be sure. You have 21 days so there is plenty of time.

Go back to the Income Tax Working Page, there should be a new option called "Documents for review" You would submit them there.

No that tab is still not there. I have tried re submitting my return as there was an error on one IRP5, now it thinks I have done my 2013 return! So confused!

Did you click request correction and submit a new return? You most likely are not being audited anymore.
