Hi guys, I submitted my tax return on the 1st July. My tax return was assessed and it was shown that a payout was due but I was selected for an Audit. After waiting 31 days I phoned and they acknowledged that this had taken longer than the stipulated time and escalated my query... I was told this could take a further 21 days???

Are we really at the mercy of the system or is there any other recourse we can take? (straight forward tax return - no vehicle allowance etc. )

Unfortunately that is correct, even we as practitioners cannot do anything about it once it has been escalated. This is one of our biggest problems with SARS. Let us know in 4 days if you have not received anything and then we can look to make a formal complaint to the SARS monitoring office.
