Beware of Scams

Do not fall victim to tax identity fraud – protect your taxpayer information, banking details, login name and password at all times.

Be aware of people who offer to complete your tax return and promise you that they can get you a refund. Only deal with registered tax practitioners. If you make deals with people who claim that they can get you a refund, you are also guilty of breaking the law.

Top tip: SARS will never request your banking or personal details in any correspondence that you receive via post, email or SMS. SARS will also not send you correspondence with hyperlinks to other websites.
