The deadline for 2015 Personal Income Tax
return (ITR12) submissions is fast approaching. Non-provisional taxpayers
should ensure that their returns have reached SARS no later than Friday 27
November 2015, in order to avoid penalties.
In an effort to assist taxpayers who are
unable to visit the branch during working hours, SARS has announced that
certain branches will be open to the public on Saturday 14 November 2015 as
well as Saturday 21 November 2015.
Please note that the staff will ONLY be
assisting with ITR12 submissions.
