Tax payment deadline looms
Sars says all new taxpayers must pay outstanding fees by next week Thursday.
JOHANNESBURG - New taxpayers have until next week Thursday to settle all outstanding payments to the South African Revenue Service (Sars) or face penalties.
Sars said it was expecting significant volumes of payments, especially on the March 28 deadline.
Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay said almost R35 billion was collected during the same time last year.
He urged taxpayers to avoid the last minute payment rush.
"Tomorrow being a public holiday and next week being Easter, the last day of business for the financial year will be March 28."
