I submitted my tax return to SARS via SARS eFiling for 2015 on time. The Tax Calculator indicated that the amount of R7584. 18 was due to me. This was confirmed by the SARS Notice of Assessment dated 2 February 2016. I quote from the correspondence as part of the Notice of Assessment: Your assessment has been concluded and reflects an amount refundable to you of R -7584. 18. Please note that this amount only reflects your income tax assessment and does not reflect tax payable under any previous assessment or any other balances on your account. The current balance on your assessed account is R -7729. 80. ((I am unsure of the full meaning of this))

For a statement reflecting your final balance, please request your statement of account from SARS. This I did. I am waiting a response. I have not been selected for an audit nor was an outstanding payment to SARS found on the SARS eFiling website. Are there any steps I can do to speed up the pay-out?

It could be that your banking details need to be updated or that you have previous tax returns which need to be submitted still. You need to call 0800 00 7277 to find out if this is the case.
