How to Get a SARS Refund is for people who derive their income from salaried employment and wish to utilise the tax laws in South Africa to maximise their refund from the South African Revenue Service (SARS) upon filing their annual tax return. The new edition contains updated examples with the latest tax rates to illustrate the amount of tax that the reader will pay on their salary from 1 March 2021.
The book also provides updates on changes to tax legislation relevant to salaried individuals so that the reader can stay up to date with what has changed and understand how this affects their ability to reduce their tax liability and increase their chances of getting a refund from SARS, as well as helping readers to navigate their way through the annual income return (ITR12) for individuals as they complete the return via eFiling.
