29 August 2018 – SARS to assist the Deaf taxpayers

PRETORIA, Wednesday, 29 August 2018 – In celebration of Deaf Awareness Month (September), SARS will be assisting the Deaf communities with their tax affairs at specific SARS branches around the country.
The initiative involves availing South African Sign Language interpreters weekly at the SARS branches in Alberton, Vereeniging, Roodepoort, Pretoria, Polokwane, Nelspruit, Durban CBD, Mthatha and Worcester.

 

The service will be rendered at the following branches during the month of September:
  • Tuesdays – Roodepoort, Worcester, Pretoria North (1st and 2nd Tuesday of September) and Pretoria CBD (3rd and 4th Tuesday of September) branches
  • Wednesdays – Alberton branch
  • Fridays – Vereeniging, Polokwane, Durban CBD, Mthatha and Nelspruit branches.

 

The public is requested to disseminate the message to all the Deaf in their respective communities and to note that this service will also be extended to other members of the community who need to visit the SARS branches.  This will afford the Deaf taxpayers with a unique opportunity to attend to their tax affairs.

 

SARS has pledged to improve accessibility for the Deaf and Blind communities, and to educate the general public about tax matters.
