I submitted my tax return via SARS eFiling on the 1st of July 2015. I was not selected to be audited. I did not get my refund as usual. When I contacted SARS they said that my payment is being audited. On the 30th of September I received a letter stating that I must submit supporting documents. The documents was submitted on the 1st of October. A completion letter was issued on the 3rd of November stating that my assessment was not changed. When I inquire now I am told that my payment is being audited. How can the payment be audited twice and again after the audited my supporting documents and found nothing wrong?
That does sound very strange. Normally, payment should be received a few days after receipt of the Completion Letter. Please read our blog on Why haven't I received my tax refund yet? to see if any of these situations apply to you.
I suggest you wait until Monday next week and call SARS again to follow up if your money has not been refunded.
