I have never claimed for a tax refund ever since I started working, so I need clarity on whether I can claim for every year since I have been employed, I have all my IRP5's, and I'm not so sure if I will get a return on some of them. So I need to know if it is possible that I do not get a tax refund, I pay medical aid, UIF, Provident fund etc. I am actually afraid that I will pay you guys and not get anything in return. Your response will be highly appreciated. Thank You.

It really depends on your circumstances. Did your medical aid come out of our salary? You can make use of our Tax refund calculator for the last two years to see if you are due a refund.

We cannot guarantee a refund if you make payment, but you do need to submit tax returns every year in order to stay compliant with SARS whether you receive a refund or not.
