I submitted my tax return for 2015 on the 3rd July 2015, was due to receive a refund. After a couple of days of no refund, I called the help desk - apparently I did not submit any tax returns for 2009 & 2010 (my job during that time did not pay enough to warrant a tax return).
Anyways I requested the 2009 and 2010 tax return.... The 2010 tax return had all my details and I promptly submitted it with no issues, however my 2009 tax return, instead of selecting save (was being called to a meeting) I clicked submit (no info entered on the tax return) which I do have the IRP5 for (with minimal info) - promptly received a letter for verification of assessment (submitted my IRP5 for 2009, today 09 July 2015) as that is all that I had/have for that year..
My question is, would SARS accept my IRP5 as a document that needed to be submitted despite no info on my tax return? Furthermore how long does it take for SARS to conclude their verification process?
