Posted on 2 Comments

The South African Revenue Service (SARS) this week announced the filing dates for the 2024 tax season.

The dates are:

  • Individual taxpayers (non-provisional): Monday, 15 July to Monday, 21 October 2024.
  • Provisional taxpayers: Monday, 15 July 2024 to Monday, 20 January 2025.
  • Trusts: Monday, 16 September 2024 to Monday, 20 January 2025.

SARS will issue auto-assessment notices to individual (non-provisional) taxpayers from 1 to 14 July.

Last year, individual (non-provisional) taxpayers were given from 7 July to 23 October – 109 days – to file their returns. This year, they have 99 days to file their returns.

SARS advises taxpayers to prepare for tax filing season by ensuring they have received their IRP5/IT3(a) and other third-party data necessary to determine their tax obligations – certificates showing their contributions to a medical scheme or a retirement annuity fund, and the dividends and interest they earned from discretionary investments.

Taxpayers can find further information about filing their tax returns and contacting SARS here.
