How do I claim back tax on a retention bonus I received from my previous company. I was advised to fill it in under the section that states "Amounts Refunded i. T. O. Section 11(nA) and 11(nB)" and code 4042. What evidence will SARS need. I called their call centre but they were of no help.

Hi, yes I did pay back the retention bonus. I only have the proof of payment from my bank that I transferred the money to the company. They did not send me a receipt.

I already submitted my tax return and now SARS wan't proof but they can't tell me what I need to submit to them.

You need to get a letter from the company stating you paid it back and submit that along with proof of payment.
