Hi there, I submitted my tax 2015 to my registered tax practitioners. I was told that SARS wanted verification on all supporting documents. I was further told that it would take up 3 months for SARS to verify the info. How is it possible that usually verification takes a 'quick look' and auditing takes 3 months? It sounds that I wax misinformed that verification should not take more than three months. If it were more than 3 months, then does it look like verification stage or auditing?
If verification was supposed to be a quick check, and there is a hold up on it - what is the likely cause to the delay of the refund?
