Tax season – it’s here!

Edward Kieswetter, Commissioner - South African Revenue Service

Tax season officially began on Monday (1 July) for taxpayers who file electronically.

The South African Revenue Service (Sars) has refreshed eFiling to simplify navigation.

You have until 4 December 2019 if you’re using eFiling.

If you need to file at a Sars branch, you have until 31 October 2019.

Provisional taxpayers using eFiling have until the end of January 2020.

Edward Kieswetter, Commissioner - South African Revenue Service
