SARS to launch its 2021 tax filing season

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The South African Revenue Service (SARS) will launch the beginning of its 2021 tax filing season on Thursday.

SARS Commissioner, Edward Kieswetter, will address the media during the launch.

Last week, SARS announced that there would be no branch filing as a result of rising coronavirus infections in the country.

It has advised taxpayers to file their returns online or use the SARS MobiApp.

The filing season starts today until the 23 November 2021.

SARS says taxpayers who will require assistance to file online will be assisted telephonically by their staff.

Taxpayers who will still need to visit a branch can do so by first making an appointment.

While those who have already accepted their auto -assessments do not need to file their returns.
