Pretoria - SA Revenue Service (Sars) commissioner Tom Moyane encouraged his staff to make paying taxes "cool" on Friday.

Moyane was addressing staff and officials at the Sars head office in Brooklyn ahead of their walk through the streets of Tshwane to launch the tax filing season.  

Tax filing season officially started on Friday, July 1 and Sars will be holding a number of "walk initiatives" until November to raise public awareness. The "walking for tax" initiative will create an opportunity for Sars officials to meet members of the public and hand out information about the tax return process. This includes informing citizens on whether they qualify to file tax or not.
