Does your employer not withhold any PAYE each month?

He does but now am confused because it changes every month. Isn't he suppose to tax my salary not my commission?

Commission is taxed and as your commission changes each month so will the tax. If you like you can apply for a tax directive from SARS so he deducts the same amount each month. Otherwise it is acceptable what he is doing.

I wanna understand you correctly. I get taxed twice - on my basic salary and commission as well?
TaxTimsays: 28 September 2015 at 11:47
You get taxed on your total earnings so you are not taxed twice, just on your income in total.

This month I got taxed on my commission on its own and still waiting for my payslip to have proof. Didn't receive my payslip from last month and just started working for this guy and something just doesn't add up. I need to get my facts right before I confront him.
I don't get paid R13 000 but that was what I brought in for the company because was out of work for 2 weeks I was sick. So they taxed me as if I earn that much.

They need to only tax on you on what you earned, you must go back and ask why are they taxing you on R13000.

Morning... I have another question. Does SARS tax me on each an every treatment that I do at work? I am a spa therapist so I do beauty treatments. Then I get taxed again my on my salary,that's what my manager told me. Am really confused. My commission this month it's R4,071.25 and my basic it's R6000 please help me calculate how much was I suppose to pay for my tax.

You get taxed each month on all the money you earned so add up your commission and your salary and then use the SARS income tax calculator to work out how much tax you were supposed to pay.
