I emailed SARS to enquire why my 2015/2015 tax returns have not been paid to me yet and they replied saying my 2011/2012 tax returns were not submitted so until they receive that then they will be able to pay me. However I received my 2012/2013 tax returns with no problems as well as my 2013/2014 tax returns as well. I don't really understand this because in 2011 - 2012 I only had a casual job for 2 months in which my wages were way below a tax bracket and I had no medical payments of my own nor any investment or retirement policies, and I didnt even have a tax number at the time as well. Could you please advise on what I should take with me to the SARS branch or how I can go about getting my tax returns for this year paid to me?
Log onto SARS eFiling and submit a nil or tax return showing the amount your earned for the 2011/2012 year - this is a new thing of SARS trying to ensure taxpayers submit all tax returns whenever money was earned.
