Ok when I went and got my tax reference number, the lady that helped me said it's a temporary number and that I will receive another one in the post. It's been 2 months gone by and I didn't get anything as yet. I just want a tax reference number. I got a temporary one only. Is this the one I need always or do I have to wait longer for another one? I don't want to pay tax.
You need to call 0800 00 7277 to ask for your tax number. You must have a reference number which is the same as a tax number. You are required by law to pay tax if you earn over the necessary threshold. It is a serious offence to not pay taxes and to not disclose income to SARS.
