I have been working for 2 years now, I started 3 December 2013 and I never filled in a tax return before. I only became a permanent employee 1 April 2015 and only then started contributing towards a medical aid and pension fund. I have missed the 27/11/2015 tax return deadline. I am not sure how this whole process works. Will I be penalized for not filling in a tax return for last year and this current year. I will be more than happy to pay for your services. Regards
You will probably be charged a small late filing fee by SARS as well as interest in the event that tax has been underpaid. However, there is also a chance that you are due a tax refund from SARS especially if you worked for part of a tax year which you did (i.e Dec 2013 - Feb 2014).
It would be best to bring your filings up to date as soon as possible to ensure you are tax compliant.
