1 July was the start of the 2009 Tax Season with the opening of the filing period for income tax returns for millions of South Africa’s individual taxpayers and trusts.
Taxpayers can begin to submit their income tax returns to the South African Revenue Service (SARS) electronically, or request SARS to issue them with a customised, pre-populated tax return (the paper version) for manual submission.
Personal Income Tax remains the largest contributor to annual revenue collection. The annual Tax Season represents the biggest public engagement between SARS and millions of taxpayers in our country.
DEADLINES FOR SUBMISSION – different deadlines apply for submission:
• The deadline for manual submissions (the paper version) is 18 September 2009.
• The deadline for electronic submissions through SARS eFiling is 20 November 2009.
SARS will this year again assist taxpayers to submit returns electronically at a SARS branch office in order to extend the benefits of automation to taxpayers.
The highly trained staff at Anthurico Tax & Accounting Consultants in their Personal Tax division can ensure that all of your personal tax requirements are taken care of professionally and on time. As SARS becomes more efficient every year, so the need increases for you to get your returns done in a professional and timely manner. Many taxpayers pay too much tax or incur severe penalties for submitting their returns late. Let the experts at Anthurico take care of all your tax needs.
