The executor is the person named in the will who is responsible for distributing the deceased person's assets and settling their debt.
This person would need to go to SARS with a Letter of Authority (naming them as the executor) and a copy of their ID, 3 months bank statements and proof of address as well as the deceased' documents; SARS will then file the tax return.
