Deadline for Provisional Taxpayers is 31 January 2018

Erratum: Individual Provisional Taxpayers are required to submit their annual income tax returns (ITR12) today, 31 January 2018 and not their IRP6 return as was communicated yesterday.  We apologise for the error.

PRETORIA, Tuesday 9 January 2018 – The South African Revenue Service (SARS) reminds individual provisional taxpayers that the deadline to submit their income tax return (IRP6) through eFiling is 31 January 2018.

Late submission could lead to penalties being charged.

A provisional taxpayer is any person who receives income (or to whom income accrues) other than a salary. This includes persons who receive rental income from a property, taxable interest income from investments or other income from a trade.

For assistance with the submission of a return via eFiling, taxpayers can call the SARS Contact Centre on 0800 00 7277 or use the Help-you-eFile icon on eFiling.  More information on provisional tax can be viewed on the SARS website at Provisional Tax.
