I am retired person age 79 being paid a SASSA Social pension of R1370 per month. I want to do a part time work in the complex I live in and wish to reactivate my SARS tax reference number an I will be earning a commission of doing some administrative work for the complex owners. Depends on the number of tenants I find and also promoting their holiday letting the earnings may be up to R4000 per month max in peak period.What tax must I pay and what is the tax directive required for a person at age 79.
The state pension if tax free and the R4000 per month does not qualify as taxable and is under the tax threshold.
