This year is the first time I had filled a return. The previous years my ex-employers did not add anything to my IRP5 and I was earning under the threshold. This year, I have tried once again and was successful. All info on IRP5 from both companies was there. I then had to fill in 2013, 2014 and 2015. My ITSA shows a refund of R9K with No verification needed. But when I look at my ITA34 for 2014 and 2015 they are asking for verification as I owe SARS. Please help in understanding this.

The ITA34 is the tax assessment and it's this document which indicates whether or not you need to submit supporting documents to verify the amounts declared for the year. You therefore need to upload the supporting documents as requested via the SARS SARS eFiling link.

Your ITSA is a Statement of Account and shows the overall cumulative position of your tax balance for all years to the current one. SARS won't pay you your refund until they complete their check of your supporting documents as requested.

Please let us know if you have further questions!
