A quick look at the SARS website shows that it has begun running updates for its mobile e-filing platform in preparation for the season ahead and has already started populating taxpayer profiles with third-party data.

According to BusinessTech, it’s expected that SARS will once again use the popular auto assessments in 2023 which have proved successful in recent years for handling less complex tax returns.

Typically the South African tax season runs for four months for non-provisional taxpayers (ending in October 2023 in this instance) and carries over longer for provisional taxpayers (ending in January 2024).

However, at the time of publishing, SARS has not yet confirmed the closing dates.
