I was retrenched and received my provident payment in March or April 2014 so now for 2015 submission I submitted the provident IRP5 and I also started with a new company in October 2014. The provident fund irp no tax was deducted but for my new employer there was but is was for total income less than R75000 for the 4. 5 months. I filed my tax return and now I received a letter for Audit review. From the looks of the calculation it seems SARS needs to refund me, how long does this reviews take?
It can take SARS up to 30 days to review your supporting documentation. If all is in order you will receive your refund a few days later. However, please read our blog on Why haven't I received my tax refund yet? to see common reasons for delays in payment.
You can always call SARS on 0800 007 277 to follow up too.
