I have more than one employer / multiple IRP5s



If you worked for multiple employers and/or have several IRP5/IT3a documents, please take note of below.

Make sure that all of your documents relate to the tax year you are busy with. Any IRP5s from previous (or future) years do not get entered in the same tax return. The document will usually state the tax year clearly, and the employment dates will fit within the tax year opening and closing dates.

You can not add multiple IRP5 documents together. They need to be entered one by one, one after the other. The sequence is not important.

TaxTim will ask you to enter one IRP5 at a time.

Enter in all the incomes, income totals, deductions, applicable taxes and pay periods for the FIRST IRP5.

Then REPEAT the process and enter in all the incomes, income totals, deductions, applicable taxes and pay periods for the SECOND IRP5.

Then REPEAT for the THIRD, FOURTH, FIFTH etc.
