Sars boss promises to improve services
Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene on Tuesday announced the preliminary revenue outcome for the 2017/2018 financial year.
South African Revenue Services (Sars) collected R1.216 trillion, 0.06% short of the target outlined by former finance minister Malusi Gigaba in his February 2018 budget speech.
Sars acting commissioner Mark Kingon says one of the key challenges in tax collection is the perception created when money is misspent or when people are not receiving services they require.
He says then people are more inclined not to pay their taxes.
We need to render a service that people will see that we are trying to treat them with respect, because if we don't people get aggrieved. Paying taxes should be easy and not a grudge...Mark Kingon, Acting Commissioner of Sars
We need to make it easier and not a burden our people.Mark Kingon, Acting Commissioner of Sars
Kingon outlined some of the measures to be put in place to make tax return processes easier for South Africans and, in return, make tax collection an easier task for the revenue service.
