SARS has introduced some changes to the auto assessment process this year to make it easier for taxpayers to file their income tax returns.

Following a recent update on auto assessments, new information has been published on the SARS website.

An auto assessment is based on data received from employers, medical aids, banks, retirement annuity funds, etc. Once SARS has completed the auto assessment, it will notify the taxpayer by SMS or email, and the taxpayer will be able to view it on the eFiling website or the SARS MobiApp. Taxpayers can view the third-party data that was used to prepopulate the return (by clicking on the “Third Party Data Certificate” search button on the menu bar) to check that the data is correct.
