When must I submit an annual tax form? (ITR12 Tax Return)
  • If you earn more than R500 000 per year.

In June 2019 SARS increased this limit from R350 000. Even if this now excludes you from submitting a return, it may be a good idea to reconsider skipping this filing season, for example maintaining an unbroken tax record with SARS stands you in good stead.

  • If you have worked for more than one employer during a tax year (March to February the following year).
  • If you were not employed for the full tax year.
  • If you receive income other than a salary or pension, for instance: interest on investments, rental or business income, including a lump sum from a pension or provident fund.
  • If you make medical aid, or retirement annuity contributions, that are not administrated through your employer’s payroll system.
  • If you receive any allowance from your employer, for example a traveling or subsistence allowance.
