Hi. My SARS status has been "Please note that your return cannot be processed as SARS is currently reviewing your assessment. The return will be reviewed as part of this process. SARS will advise you on the outcome in due course." for a week now and no changes to date.
When will this change or when will SARS at least change the status or look at my return?
Unfortunately this is in the hands of SARS and can take in some instances up to 3 months for them to have a look at the return. Did you submit several returns at once for different years?

Somehow SARS said that the tax returns for 2012, 2014 were outstanding but from my side this was submitted and only after submitting my 2015 return did they request directives for all 3 years which I submitted on the same day. After speaking to one of the consultants at SARS they confirm this will be finalised within 30 days.
