I have submitted my tax returns and they called for my 2013 tax return which I did, they then called for verification of income tax declaration for the PAYE amount. I then went to SARS to submit my IRP5 from 2013 to show them proof of my PAYE amount. This isn't a real complex case all they need to verify is my PAYE amount.
How long will it take them to pay out my refund with regards to the above case?
If they request supporting documents from you, it can take 21-30 days for them to review and issue you with a "completion letter", thereafter you should receive your refund in a few days provided all your prior tax returns have been filed and SARS has record of your latest bank details.
You can always call SARS on 0800 007 277 to follow up on the process.
