The SA Revenue Service (SARS) has moved to remind taxpayers that there are some major tax deadlines to take note of in the coming weeks – with one payment method closing to submissions as early as Thursday 22 October.
Those who want to file their tax returns at a SARS branch now only have a few days to do so. It is worth noting that those planning to submit their returns in this manner must first make an appointment to see a branch consultant – this is due to COVID-19 restrictions, which are still applicable across the country:
“Individual taxpayers, who wish to file their personal income tax return at a South African Revenue Service branch, have until Thursday to do so. The South African Revenue Service reminds individual taxpayers, who wish to file their personal income tax return at a SARS branch, that the final day to do so is on Thursday.”
“Taxpayers can book their appointment via the link – https://tools.sars.gov.za/SARSeBooking – which is on the website – www.sars.gov.za. To assist taxpayers who file at branches, SARS has extended its branch operating hours until Thursday. On weekdays, our branches will open from 8:00 – 18:00.”SA Revenue Service statement on tax deadline
You can also ask a SARS agent to assist by calling 0800 117 277. Those making in-person returns must carry relevant supporting documents – such as their ID or driving license, proof of residence, or a bank statement not older than three months. Proof of income (such as payslips, IRP5, and tax certificates) are also required. All taxpayers must note:
