The South African Revenue Service (Sars) reminds taxpayers that it is a criminal offence not to submit a tax return for any of the tax types for which they are registered.
The tax types are personal income tax (either pay-as-you-earn or provisional), corporate income tax and value-added tax.
Sars says it has noticed an increase in taxpayers not submitting their tax returns by the stipulated deadlines and not settling their outstanding debts with Sars. This is not limited to the current tax year, but includes substantial non-compliance across previous tax years.
