Filing season starts on the 1st of July this year. A significant number of individual taxpayers may be auto-assessed again this year. This auto-assessment will commence in July. SARS will send you an SMS if you are selected to be auto-assessed. SARS will auto-assess based on the data received from employers, financial institutions, medical schemes, retirement annuity fund administrators and other 3rd party data providers. If you accept your auto-assessment, any under or overpayment of tax will be processed as normal. We highly recommend that you do not just accept the auto-assessment, but rather contact us for professional assistance in this regard.
Filing Season 2021 dates:
1 July to 23 November 2021:
- Non-provisional taxpayers who file online.
- Taxpayers who cannot file online can do so at a SARS branch by appointment only.
