  2. Logon to your eFiling profile and open the applicable ITR12 / ITR14.
  3. Don't know your way around eFiling? Try our easy SARS eFiling guide.
  4. Copy everything from the tax return generated by TaxTim onto your blank ITR12 / ITR14 on eFiling.
  5. Fill in the missing personal information (see our security policy).
