FAQ: Am I required to submit an income tax return if I am a South African resident but I work overseas and I do not earn other income from a South African (SA) source except for exempt interest income from a South African source?

If you are still a resident in South Africa, all residents are taxed on worldwide income irrespective of where the income was earned. If you are a resident, exempt interest should be declared as it forms part of gross income.
