Last year all my outstanding previous years 2006 to 2014 was brought up to date via SARS eFiling and finally having to go into SARS to submit documents. After accumulative penalties deducted (R14k) and an audit I still managed to get a refund which was paid to me 15 July 2014 (11k).

This season 1 July 2015 I submitted my tax return, again I was selected for audit. SARS requested supporting docs which I submitted as per notification and I'm due a refund. Today I contacted SARS to inquire what the hold up was regarding my refund (R5k) and was informed that I owe SARS R4k which I have to settle first before I can receive my refund.

My question is when I settled my taxes last year at the SARS branch the consultant assured me that my taxes were up to date. I checked on SARS eFiling and the penalties states it's for the years I failed to submit. To my knowledge and understanding this was all deducted when I went into SARS last year 2014 before my refunds due to me was paid into my account.

You need to go back into a SARS branch with all your documentation showing your completed assessments and proof of payment and dispute this penalty to have to have it reversed.
