I started working at a company as a temporary part-time employee last year July and I received my first salary in December 2013 which included all the money from the month I started working there. The salary was R32 800 and tax deducted from that money and I only received R24 000. From what I have heard is that the company deducts 25% from my income since I am a part time employee. I am not working anywhere else except for this company. Do I qualify to apply for a tax refund? And if yes, how much should I expect in my account after claiming? Oh, I forgot to mention that the only thing that is deducted from my salary is PAYE and nothing else.
You can submit a return and you will be entitled to quite a bit of tax back. For the 2014 tax year which ended on 28 February 2014 you were only liable for tax on income greater than R67 111, when filing season opens on 1 July you will be able to file your return and receive your refund.
