Individual Taxpayers Affected By The Problem With Easyfile
THIS ONLY AFFECTS TAX PAYERS WHO RECEIVED TRAVEL ALLOWANCE OR COMPANY CAR
There was an error with easyfile from SARS’s side when employers had to submit the EMP501 submissions in April-May. All employers that used the following source codes are affected – 3701 (Travel allowance), 3702 (re-imbursive travel over 8000km) and 3802 (Use of motor vehicle).
This means that employers should re-submit the EMP501’s as well as the IRP5’s.
If you are a taxpayer that received a travel allowance or a company car, you might be affected as well.
If you have sent us your tax return and we have filed your return please help us and do the following:
1) Obtain the re-submitted IRP5 from your employer
2) Send it to us and indicate when your employer re-submitted it
3) We will then re-submit your income tax return with the updated income tax
4) We will only charge R100 excluding VAT for this re-submission even if it goes to audit. So R100 flat
If you haven’t sent us all your information yet, please obtain your updated IRP5 if you received a travel allowance or company car and send it to us as soon as you are ready.
