SARS issued anti-fraud leaflet to raise awareness on how to protect taxpayers eFiling profiles

Notice

On 19 April 2022 SARS issued an anti-fraud leaflet. Find it Here.

Information and Implications

Guidance is provided on how to protect taxpayers’ eFiling profiles, for instance:

  • Taxpayers to activate the One-Time-Pin (OTP) security feature on their eFiling profile
  • Taxpayers to log-off completely after accessing their eFiling profile, etc.

This is important for the accountant and taxpayer to avoid:

  • Increased tax liabilities to SARS due to scams, or
  • Becoming the subject of a criminal investigation

Context for beginners

Fraudulent activities are carried out by individuals who gain access to eFiling profiles through phishing or other nefarious scams to:

  • Change a legitimate taxpayer’s bank details to divert refunds, or
  • Submit fraudulent tax returns to generate refunds.

An example of a scam email can be found Here.
