According to your answer on a previous response on road accident fund payout, the funds received does not have to be declared and is non taxable.

What about the interest received on the funds? The interest earned are my only source of income do I have to declare the interest received and pay tax on it?

Yes the interest would be taxable for amounts over R23 800 if you are under 65 and R34 500 if you are over 65 years of age. What is the amount of interest earned?
