Am I a Tax Resident of South Africa?

Answer Tim's simple questions below to find out if you are an SA Tax Resident

Tim is typing...

Hello, my name is Tim. I will ask you a set of questions to help you decide whether you are a tax resident of South Africa or not.

Yes, I am a tax resident of South Africa

This means that you are subject to paying tax on your income earned from SA AND from all over the world, and this must be declared in a tax return submitted every year to the South African Revenue Service (SARS). Make use of TaxTim to ensure you are tax compliant and qualify for your maximum allowable tax refund.

No, I am not a tax resident of South Africa

This means you only have to fill out a tax return if you earn money from sources in South Africa. You don't have to pay tax on any income earned from outside of SA.
