My mom is 73 years old and she has had some penalties from previous years that she has made arrangements to pay to SARS, last year she was advised buy an official at a SARS branch to apply for tax pardon as she can no longer afford the monthly payments to SARS. There has been no response.
Secondly, I have had a tax consultant who is helping my mom with eFiling for 2013 and he informed me that he could not proceed with the filling as he is asked for supporting documents. What does this mean?
It means he needs to have all her documents that were used to file her return for 2013. So for instance, interest certificates, IRP5's from pension funds or wherever she earns income or proof of her expenses.
If you have a case number for the arrangements with SARS then you can call their call centre all the person whom she dealt with to find out why there is a delay.
