Dear TaxTim. Worked in a Government Hospital, resigned in 2006. The following year went to fetch my IRP5 2007 but couldn't be found, assumed somebody took it for me. Now I'm in Gauteng where can I get a copy. I'm being penalised. Thanks
If you unable to obtain it from your previous employer, you need to go to you local police station and Swear an affidavit stating the reasons why you cannot produce your IRP5. You can take this to SARS together with any payslips or bank statements you may have which would prove your earnings for this year.
