six weeks to deadline

2010-10-19 00:00

TAXPAYERS have less than six weeks in which to submit their tax returns via electronic submissions.

The deadline for electronic submissions for non-provisional taxpayers and trusts is November 26, 2010 while the deadline for provisional taxpayers and trusts is January 31, 2011.

The eFiling of tax returns has become increasingly popular in recent years.

A mere 80 000 people opted for the manual route in 2010, compared with several million “e-Filers”.

The SA Revenue Service (SARS) expects a total of about 3,5 million to submit their returns.

It said taxpayers can visit any SARS branch until November 26 for assistance with eFiling.
