The New Age (KwaZulu-Natal) - - Inside -

TAX­PAY­ERS who do not sub­mit their tax re­turns will end up with a crim­i­nal record, the South African Rev­enue Ser­vice (SARS) said yes­ter­day. The rev­enue ser­vice said it had em­barked on a new ini­tia­tive with the NPA to pros­e­cute non­com­pli­ant tax­pay­ers, in­clud­ing promi­nent South Africans, who have failed to sub­mit re­turns. “Tax­pay­ers who are found guilty will end up with a crim­i­nal record. The ini­tia­tive has al­ready seen its first con­vic­tion in Port Shep­stone last week,” it said. – 701068
