I worked for a firm March to July 2016 as a temp and according to them I only need to submit my IRP5 Form next year 2017. They advised me that they will only process their IRP5's again next year 2017 and that the next tax season is 1 March 2016 to 28 February 2017 and I must submit in 2017. Is this correct. They took 25% tax off my salary as a temp for these 5 months and I need to claim these monies back.

They are unfortunately right, you can only claim the tax you paid from March to July 2016 in the next tax period which starts 1 July 2017.
