Hi Tim,

My route has changed from last year meaning the private and business km's. Have already submitted through eFiling 2 weeks ago. How long will it take for me to get a refund?

Hi Tim,

Yes.

You need to wait until you have received a completion letter from SARS and after that you will receive your refund, it could be 3 weeks from filing date.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the response, it's been three weeks now and I haven't heard anything from SARS re my tax refund.

What can be the hold up?
