North Gauteng High Court confirms taxpayer information is confidential

Pretoria, Monday 23 March 2020 – The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has noted that the High Court has found in favour of SARS in the matter between the Commissioner and the Public Protector regarding the subpoena issued upon the Commissioner for taxpayer information.
In brief, the High Court has confirmed that SARS is permitted in law, and in fact required to withhold taxpayer information from the Public Protector.
SARS is studying the judgment carefully and will provide a reasoned response in due course.
