Taxpayers urged to file returns to avoid penalties

Taxpayers urged to file returns to avoid penalties

Non-provisional taxpayers who have not filed their returns have until midnight to do so in order to avoid penalties or charges. 


Last week, the revenue said Durban residents accounted for the highest number of outstanding returns.

The revenue says R21.3 billion has been paid out in refunds and over half a million outstanding returns have been received from taxpayers since the first of July. 

SARS spokesperson Janine Mqulwana says at this point only electronic filing via eFiling or the SARS mobiapp using a smartphone is available. 

"Filing over the counter at a SARS branch closed at the end of October and should taxpayers go to a branch at this point they will only be assisted with self-help eFiling options."

"Taxpayers can be assured that using e-filing as well as the SARS mobiapp is extremely simple. You information has already been pre-loaded on to your tax return to verify if correct and also at this point you do not need to upload an supporting documents," she said.
