That is against tax law as each employer needs to provide an IRP5 each year so you can use to file your tax return. How much do you earn each month?

My salary is not stable, it's range from R1,000 - R1,300 and it's paid after every 2weeks, And it has been taxed for et least 3years, and I've never received an IRP 5, I've went to SARS and some officials told me I need to be fired and have valid papers that will act as Proof. How can I go about it without being fired from my current employer ?

The only way to then prove to SARS is to take your payslips, bank statements and employment contract to show how much you are paid, how much was paid to you and therefore the tax being the difference. However if you are earning under R70 700 for the whole year then you actually do not need to submit a return to SARS because you should not have been paying tax.
