From October 2022 an individual may be automatically registered for personal income tax if SARS detects 3rd party data that indicates economic activity.
SARS will send an SMS and a letter to such an individual, officially welcoming them as a registered taxpayer.
What are the next steps?
Newly registered taxpayers to register for eFiling, as this is the most efficient way to file a tax return, view assessment results, make payments, and manage many other tax matters.
