I have been doing SARS eFiling since 2010 (first assessment submitted for 2009). My question is that SARS can not refund the payment due to me for my submitted 2015 assessment as my tax returns for 2007 and 2008 are still outstanding.
The company informed me that no IRP5's for that two years are still available. What do I do now? My income was less than R100 000 a year though - is there any way that I can submit a nil tax return? I can not indicate that I was unemployed for the years as I was employed. Please advise.
Yes submit a nil tax return and then if SARS asks for verification go to the police station and swear an affidavit that you are unable to retrieve the IRP5's.

Thanks for quick response - to file a nil tax return - do I claim unemployed full year or do I claim employed and insert 0's - sorry for stupid question 8 really don't know how to file a nil tax return.

Yes, you would say unemployed and file that. See our article on nil tax returns.
