I owe SARS unpaid assessed VAT which is accumulating interest and penalties. It has been almost 10 years and I received no correspondence from them concerning this matter. Upon my recent request for a tax clearance certificate I was told I had unpaid taxes that are accumulating interest. How do I go about settling this with SARS. I am now unemployed and have no assets. Can I make small payments or get part of it written off as I was unaware of this matter until now?
