If the whole idea of submitting your tax return makes you want to ugly-cry into a tub of ice cream, you might be in luck: there are cases in which you don’t have to submit any tax returns at all. This is the case if:
Your annual income from 1 March 2017 to 28 February 2018 did not exceed R350 000;
You don’t need to claim any tax- deductible expenses such as medical-aid contributions, retirement annuity, or travel expenses/ other expenses;
You received no other income, for example rental income (such as via Airbnb) or interest for the year;
You only received remuneration/salary/ employment income from one employer between March 2017 and February 2018.
