Tax refund delays are not deliberate says tax expert

There are concerns from taxpayers that Sars is delaying paying out tax refunds.

Mark Kingon, Group Executive Business and Individual Tax Relationship Manager, says the delays are not done deliberately.

He says they have already paid about R155 billion, which is 9% higher than the previous year.

About 11% of the cases have been rerouted for an audit, says Kingon.

Kingon says some payments are delayed because there are issues that still need to be looked at and can't simply be ignored in order to meet the target.

Banking details is one of the areas that delay the repayment of refunds and outstanding returns as well.
