Please Note: You cannot register for eFiling on the mobisite or the App due to security reasons. It is advised that you first register for eFiling on a desktop or laptop and once the registration is successful, you can continue using either the eFiling App or SARS mobisite.  


What is the SARS eFiling Mobisite?

The SARS eFiling MobiSite allows you to submit your individual Income Tax Return (ITR12) via eFiling from your mobile device’s Internet browser. The SARS eFiling MobiSite is available for anyone that does not have the SARS eFiling App and also has the added advantage for blind taxpayers who rely on screen-reading software to navigate on their mobile devices, PC or laptop. Visually impaired taxpayers will also benefit since the SARS eFiling MobiSite also offers improved contrast and is able to adapt to the user’s choice of screen colour. The mobisite is accessible to blind and visually impaired taxpayers.
Important: Please note that the SARS eFiling MobiSite will only allow you to complete, save and submit your 2017 Income Tax Return.  Returns for previous years of assessment are, however, not available via the MobiSite. Additional to the Income Tax Return (ITR12) available on the SARS eFiling MobiSite, you can also register for eFiling, view notices sent to your inbox from SARS, request your username be sent to you, reset your eFiling password, request a Notice of Assessment (ITA34) and an Income Tax Statement of Account (ITSA).
