Hi Tim

My husband earns about R44 000p/a. For the past 3 months, money has been taken out of his account by SARS. According to them, it is outstanding taxes from years passed when he neglected to pay his taxes, however this is the most he's ever earned.

Is that at all possible with his salary?

It could be penalties related to not filing his returns in the past, but No it would not be income tax related as he falls way below the annual tax threshold (R63,556 for 2013). Please ask SARS to issue you with a Penalty Notice. Unfortunately you will need to contact the call centre for this on 0800 00 7277.
