I'm due for a refund but there's a 'hold-up' as I owe SARS something from 2009. I'm not sure what to do fro this point forward - where or how do I find out what is owed - how can SARS be owing me when I owe them - why weren't there red flags or bold flashing print popping up when I completed my annual tax returns?
It's like they're hiding the fact that I owe them and I've now probably encured some hefty penalties and interest... ;(

What do I do?

You can request a statement of account for 2009 on SARS SARS eFiling to see the balance you owe. The statement will also show penalties and interest.

If you are not registered for SARS eFiling see how to do so:

You could also call SARS on 0800 007 277 and ask them to send you a statement.

Unfortunately, they will not pay you your refund until you settle this liability with them.
