We're you asked to provide supporting documents? Sometimes the communication from SARS does not get through, but if they want to see some supporting proof of the expenses / incomes you claim then they will withhold your refund until they get the documents. Otherwise refunds are usually paid in a day or two, unless they have the incorrect banking details for you, or you have changed them recently and not provided proof of the change.
