Johannesburg – The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has until the end of July to review and add its responses to the issues raised in a provisional report based on an investigation by the Tax Ombud.

Tax Ombudsman Judge Bernard Ngoepe spoke to Fin24 on Thursday, where he gave an update on the progress of the investigation into the tax authority related to delayed refunds, launched earlier this year.
