Nah don't do that. The SARS buggers will find you and tell you that you owe them 30K and you must pay or else. Happened to me, twice, the bastards. Last year they had to pay me monies though.

IRP5 should already be on on the efiling system as it is submitted by your employer.
My details are already there.

Please dont do this.. Please. been down this road.... it doesnt end well for you.
There is nothing on efiling. No IRP5 has been submitted. I tried doing a normal submission but efiling disables the checkbox for did you receive any income that is on an IRP5. Calculation results then just says I owe nothing.

Contact them directly too, their call system can be irritating. But rather that, than some nasty letters and phone calls.

Depends if the select you for verification or audit or what ever they call it. Previous years I got mine with in a few days after calculation, but last year I was selected for verification and waited 3 months.

I filled out my form to about 90%, saved it to come back later and complete.
Came back later with the last few bits of information I needed and my IRP5 was missing and my form completely cleared. Contacting them this morning. IRP5 still missing

Feedback: just completed mine, everything was pre-populated (even my RA). Just added the last few bits and uploaded supporting documents.

A very much improved process.

Don't know why nobody's mentioned this....

Perhaps you fall in this category and then you should be okay to not file.

I fell under that category as I was studying last year and only received a real salary Jan and Feb, so if I did not file a tax return I would not have gotten any money back.
Now I'm getting a (relatively) decent amount back.
But good to know for future reference, thanks.

Unless you just register for provisional tax. Enter your income as shown on your payslip.

Sars will expect you to pay something, so just keep your payslips that allege that your employer paid PAYE for you

AFAIK, this is very specific stuff and mainly applies if you fall below the threshold.

From what it sounds like, I could haz my munies some time this week (did my yesterday morning) as I have been audited the last two times and it took ~four weeks. 😢

Not sure if you sorted yet. Also couldn't find my return.

You have to request it then only will it be generated.
Returns Issued >> Personal Income Tax (ITR12)
Select 2019 from the drop down list >> Request Return

Any medical aid contributions also sway things quite nicely.

Yes...you won't get anything back, but you should also not receive a "Go to jail, Go straight to Jail, Do not pass go, do not collect R500" card

Was specifically aimed at @LaidtoRest_ZA to see if he might be ok if he is unable to sort the IRP5

That first claim when you start work, getting the whole Jan and Feb back, really helps in getting set up. Sort out whatever debt you might have incurred moving to your job, or to scrape together that first real deposit for rent, or for your empty living room to get a chair :p

The accuracy in this.:ROFLMAO: I'm paying off debt that was incurred paying a deposit for a flat.
