SARS extends filing season deadline

THE SOUTH African Revenue Service (Sars) announced it will extend the filing season deadline for non-provisional individual taxpayers to December 2 to afford taxpayers the opportunity to comply with their legal requirements.

Sars said it was pleased with the overwhelming response it has received from taxpayers who have submitted their personal income tax returns since July 1 this year.

“Sars would like to thank these taxpayers for responding to our strategic intent of promoting a culture of voluntary compliance,” it said.

“However, to afford other taxpayers the opportunity to comply with their legal requirements, Sars will extend the filing season deadline for non-provisional individual taxpayers from November 23 to December 2.”

The revenue service added that it was acutely aware of systemic issues the organisation has experienced, as well as the impact of load shedding on taxpayers, which made it difficult for taxpayers to file their returns.

“As a result, the date for levying of penalties on taxpayers that have not filed their return will be extended and implemented in January 2022.”

“We urge taxpayers to use our convenient digital channels, namely eFiling, Sars MobiApp, as well as the SMS service on 47277. By sending an SMS to this number, taxpayers can book an appointment at a Sars branch, check if they need to file a return and other services.”
