I have been a housewife for a very long time. I am now 63 years old. We are married outside community of property. I had a business for a short period, many years back, which failed (I have no business sense it seems) and since then my husband was giving me money every month. It was quite a lot of money at the time, but I didn't really think that it would count as a salary. I bought a house and sold it 10 years later using the money my husband gave me. I got about 500k out from that. I have the 500k invested with a big investment firm now. My husband can no longer give me any money (he lost all his - no business sense either I guess). I am now dependent on the money I have invested. My daughter says that I probably owe SARS more money than I have because of all the years my husband gave me money. I am so scared that they will take my money away and then I will have nothing. I am much too scared to go in and ask, because I don't know what they will do. I do have a tax number, but I must have gotten that all those years ago when I had a business.
