How do I find out what my Tax status is and will that make SARS audit me if not correct?
I am a free lance artist I pay tax on some of my fees from some clients. I rent out cameras, and have a part time job at my family business (whose taxes are also a mess). Tax is like gibberish to me I do not understand how it works and so I just stay away. Now my bank needs a tax status for a loan and im scared I will get audited if not right.

You need to request your tax clearance status online - please read our blog on The new tax clearance system

You will need to bring all your filings up to date and pay over any outstanding balances in order to have your tax clearance approval for your bank. The request for your tax clearance status won't in itself trigger an audit.

Please Register for TaxTim and let us assist you to bring your filings up to date.
