DON’T FORGET YOUR TAX RETURN
If you have not yet submitted your tax return, you have only days left to do so – the deadline is Friday, November 20.
Despite some reports of problems with the eFiling website over the past weekend, the South African Revenue Service said this week that the deadline would not be extended.
The only exception will be for provisional taxpayers who do not have any outstanding tax returns and who will file through a tax practitioner using the e@syFile system. If you are one of these taxpayers, you have until February 28 next year to complete your return, but you must be prepared to pay any tax due on assessment within seven days of your assessment being issued.
