FAQ: Will my previous year’s income tax return be assessed using the current income tax laws and provisions?

No. Your old returns will be assessed using the income and deduction allowances applicable to the relevant year of assessment. The SARS income tax calculation system is able to calculate tax accurately using the new returns for any year since 1975.
