How do I send SARS my return

Taxpayers need to submit a tax return to SARS so we can calculate your tax liability based on the income you declare and the tax-deductible expenses you have incurred for a year of assessment. In some cases it may result in a refund.

The annual Filing Season is when you will be required to submit a return. For most taxpayers this runs from July to November every year. 

For more information on who needs to send a return, the channels through which you can send your return, the relevant material (supporting documentation) that you will need to keep handy and more, see the information on the
Filing Season webpage.

Apart from sending your return through the usual channels and the SARS eFiling website via your PC, you can now also download our MobiApp on your tablet or smartphone.

If you want to know how to get your tax number, what to do if you forgot your eFiling password, how to download the travel e-logbook, how medical tax credits work, and much more, see the Filing Season page.
