Hi Tim;

I recently completed and sent my tax return via SARS eFiling. I was selected for auditing and asked to provide supporting documents. I have nothing complicated going-on: I earn income only from my employer. All my benefits and deductions with respect to retirement fund and medical aid are all reflected on my IRP5 i.e. I don't have a personal retirement annuity or medical aid scheme outside of those in my salary package; as reflected on my IRP5. So what could be the problem?

The only supporting document I have submitted to SARS is my IRP5. In a case as simple as mine, is it likely that I will be asked for additional documents? If so then what could these be?

How long does SARS typically take to resolve a case as simple as mine?

Thank you for the great info on this site.

You would have needed to supply your medical aid document as well otherwise SARS may ignore the number of members on the fund. Let us know when they come back to you with a result and we can assist from there.

Thanks for the compliments!
