Sars Tax Returns

Recommended Posts

Does one have to continue to submit annual SARS tax returns after leaving for the US unless emigrating officially?

Thanks for that - looks like one has to continue submitting returns. Anyone in the US actually doing this and any difficulties with double taxation etc?

Yeah, we're both still filing every year. No problems with double taxation yet, although they do tend to scrutinize our tax returns and request supporting documents more often than previously. Of course, they may just be doing that with everyone nowadays, to make sure they get every penny from the good honest tax base, while the crooks are left to run wild

JumpingJasonFlash, are you filing yourself or have someone in SA helping you? Does the tax treaty with the US mean that there is no tax payable in SA? Do you have to submit proof of taxes paid in the US? Do you just declare all your US income and show that you paid tax on it in the US? Do you also submit provisional returns or just annually?

Sorry for all the questions, but understanding this is stressing me out somewhat
