If you are working part time then you will have 25% withheld and paid to SARS even if you fall under the current annual bracket of R70 700 per year.

That is why you have had tax deducted, but you should have filed returns to claim the tax back. You can still do this for older years.

You need all the IRP5's received for each year. You should file as soon as possible.

You can file by registering for SARS eFiling
