Morning, in March I was taxed R1600 according to my payslip. I still do not understand why I was taxed so much. I earn R8000 a month & I get paid on the 25th of everything.

Please make use of our SARS income tax calculator to see what tax you should pay on R8,000 per month.

That tax does seem high - were there any other deductions on your payslip? Did you perhaps receive additional pay (e.g. bonus / overtime) which would result in higher tax? It would be best to follow up with your employer to find out why the tax is so high.
