Taxpayers need to submit a tax return to SARS so we can calculate your tax liability based on the income you declare and the tax-deductible expenses you have incurred for a year of assessment. In some cases it may result in a refund. The annual Tax Season is when you will be required to submit a return. For most taxpayers this runs from July to November every year.

Apart from sending your return through the usual channels and the SARS eFiling website via your PC, you can now also download our MobiApp on your tablet or smartphone.
