Would just like to know. I have done my tax return for 2014, and have queried the SARS Status on my eFiling which is now: " Return - Data Submitted To ITS". My assessment has been done, and I have received a statement of account as well. The statement reflects that there is a refund due to me. My question: How long does it take for SARS to process my refund, and how long do I have to wait for the amount to be paid into my account?
If you had to submit supporting documents then this could take a few days still, you will receive a completion letter indicating what the result of the verification is. If no supporting documents were needed then you should receive the refund in a day or two.

Hi Tim. No documents were required or requested from my side. The efiling was done, assessment notice received, as well as my Statement of Account reflecting a refund due to me.

Let us know if you do not receive your refund in a day or two.

Did phone the Call Centre and they confirmed that the payment should be in my account by tomorrow morning...
