How many years of back-tax can you claim for?

I've been working part-time, although it is practically full-time, for the past five years. The work pays 25% of my incoming salary to tax. As I understand it I can claim for a portion of this money back, but have failed to do so in the past years. I just want to know if I can claim for previous years worked as well and what I will need to claim this. I do have my IRP 5's from the years of 2010, 2011 and 2012, 2013 not being out yet. Please help!

You will be able to submit your tax returns for the last 5 years, I am not sure how much you will get back as a refund, it would depend on what you have earned each year, but most certainly can submit.
