Received notification from SARS to supply proof of expenses claimed on personal tax return for the 2009 years, which was already assessed, re assessed by SARS in Nov 09 and April 2010. Outstanding fees were duly paid in Nov 09. All proof of expenses were duly supplied. IS SARS allowed to re assess again in Sept 2015?

SARS has also request the same for the 2010 year, 2010 was assessed and no proof of expenses were requested. A refund of -R6k was paid over by SARS to me. IS SARS allowed to re assess this again in Sept 2015?

If they have finalised the assessment then they have to provide reasons as to why they are opening up the assessments again. For 2009 provide them with the same documents and for 2010 provide an affidavit stating that you are unable to get those documents due to it being 5 years ago. The only reason they can reassess is if they found income which you did not declare or something like that. You can call the call centre as well on 0800 00 7277 to find out what their reasoning is, for a start though try with the original documents submitted. We will be here to advise a long the way.
