The tax season for individuals to submit their Income Tax returns begins on 1 July 2017. We provide below answers to some of the most common queries individuals may have.

What are the Deadlines for the Submission of Income Tax Returns?

It is important for taxpayers to note that the South African Revenue Service (“SARS”) has implemented different deadline dates for the submission of Income Tax returns depending on the manner of submission of the return. The deadline dates are as follows:

  • 22 September 2017 for manually submitted returns;
  • 24 November 2017 for returns submitted electronically at a SARS branch or
    via e-filling; or
  • 31 January 2018 for returns submitted by provisional taxpayers via e-filling.
However, the abovementioned deadlines do not apply to companies, as they are required to submit their returns within 12 months of their financial year end via e-filing.
