SARS Auto-Assessment

Please note that if a taxpayer received a SARS auto-assessment on their personal tax for 2021 they have until 23 November 2021 to respond to the assessment.

An estimated assessment will be issued by SARS if they do not respond by 23 November 2021.

Should the taxpayer disagree with the estimated assessment, they can still file a tax return within 40 working days. This tax return will however be subject to late submission penalties and interest.

It is important that taxpayers check their auto-assessments carefully, as auto-assessments do not include any additional claimable deductions.
