The SA Revenue Services (Sars) says singer Ringo Madlingozi has until the end of January to settle his tax debt.

Singer Ringo Madlingozi has until the end of January to settle his tax debt, the SA Revenue Services (Sars) said on Friday.

He was convicted of 28 counts of tax fraud by the Johannesburg Regional Court last month, said Sars deputy spokeswoman Marika Muller.

His R4000 fine on each count was wholly suspended for five years on condition that he not be convicted of the same offences in that time, she said in a statement.

The Xhosa-singing musician failed to make his workers' Pay As You Earn contributions to Sars even though he had been deducting it from their salaries since 1999.

Sars took the matter to court in November last year.
