Tax dead­line looms

The New Age (Western Cape) - - Inside -

PRO­VI­SIONAL tax­pay­ers have un­til mid­night to file their in­come tax re­turns (IRP6) through eFil­ing, SARS warned yes­ter­day.

A pro­vi­sional tax­payer is any per­son who re­ceives in­come, or to whom in­come ac­crues, other than a salary. This in­cludes rental in­come from a prop­erty, tax­able in­ter­est in­come from in­vest­ments or other in­come from a trade, SARS said.

Chan­nels such as the SARS mo­bisite, avail­able at www.sarse­fil­ing.mobi, are avail­able for easy fil­ing via one’s mo­bile de­vice. Late sub­mis­sion will at­tract penal­ties, said SARS. “The dead­line also ap­plies to pay­ments from in­di­vid­ual tax­pay­ers who filed per­sonal in­come tax re­turns last year and owe SARS money.

“While penal­ties and in­ter­est ap­ply to late pay­ments, tax­pay­ers in fi­nan­cial dif­fi­culty can ap­proach SARS to de­fer pay­ment or pay in in­stal­ments.”

Tax­pay­ers who wish to make pay­ment ar­range­ments must go to their near­est SARS branch or call the SARS con­tact cen­tre on 0800 00 7277.

Three main pay­ment chan­nels are avail­able, in­clud­ing eFil­ing, via a bank or EFT. – TNA Re­porter
