SARS has extended the filing season deadline.
The Revenue Service said it was impacted by load shedding and “systemic issues.”
“...to afford other taxpayers the opportunity to comply with their legal requirements, SARS will extend the filing season deadline for non-provisional individual taxpayers from 23 November 2021 to 2 December 2021.
“SARS is acutely aware of systemic issues the organisation has experienced, as well as the impact of load shedding on taxpayers which made it difficult for taxpayers to file their returns.
As a result, the date for levying of penalties on taxpayers that have not filed their return, will be extended and implemented in January 2022.”
It added that its website, www.sars.gov.za, has also been upgraded to allow for more digital services to taxpayers.
