Two important tax deadlines fall on January 31, the SA Revenue Service (Sars) said on Wednesday.

The first deadline was for the submission of 2012 income tax annual returns (ITR12) by "provisional” taxpayers who use the e-filing system, it said in a statement.

Provisional taxpayers are people who receive an income other than a salary.

The second deadline is for the payment of outstanding assessed tax by taxpayers who filed their returns on e-filing.

The filing deadline was November 23 last year.

"As part of the range of incentives to use e-filing, taxpayers are given until 31 January to make payment on an assessed tax liability, irrespective of when they submitted their returns,” Sars said.
