The answer to this query is based on legislation as at 2014/03/24.

Q: How do I lodge an objection against an administrative penalty if no penalty assessment notice (AP34) is available on e-filing and there is no administrative penalty in the income tax assessment (IT34)? Please also provide me with the correct procedure to follow to make such an objection. 

A: Your problem certainly relaters to a technical error. My suggestion is that you once again contact the call centre and ask that they forward you (email) a statement of account of the AP34 account. Thereafter write a letter to SARS (objection) and attach an NOO1 as well and indicate periods to which the penalty assessments relate. Notwithstanding the above I suggest that you firstly contact the call centre again and explain that your problem relates to a technical error – SARS should be able to assist in this regard and provide technical support.
