Record number tax returns filed


SAPA

Johannesburg - Over four million tax returns had been filed with the SA Revenue Service by Thursday last week for the 2010/11 tax season, the highest number in the country's history. The 4 010 980 returns were filed by individuals, trusts and provisional taxpayers, Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay said in a statement on Sunday. "At the corresponding time for the 2010 tax season, Sars had received 3 523 707 returns... a 13.8% increase in the number of returns submitted." Provisional taxpayers - individuals with additional sources of income like investment income or trading income from operating a business - still had until midnight on Tuesday, January 31 to submit returns electronically.
