Manage your tax debt 

Do you have outstanding taxes? Do you need help deciding what to do or whom to call?

Taxpayers, both individuals and businesses, are required to be fully tax compliant through on time submission of returns and payments.

In instances where taxpayers are not compliant and have outstanding tax debt the Debt Management department is committed to assisting businesses and individuals to become fully compliant.

Any outstanding debt queries and deferred arrangements requests may be sent to the following email addresses:

Note: Please only send to one mailbox. Sending to multiple mailboxes will result in duplication and time delays. Any mails not related to Debt issues, will be ignored.

There are three ways to find out how much tax debt you owe:
1. Call the SARS Contact Centre.

Steps to follow:
  • Call the SARS Contact Centre and request a statement of account.
  • You will be requested to provide your tax reference number.
  • If you do not have your tax reference number you can provide the SARS Contact Centre Agent with your ID number or the business registration number.
  • Please note the SARS Contact Centre Agent will follow an authentication process.
