Do I need to pay tax

People who pay income tax are generally individuals who earn an income e.g. from a salary, commission, fees, etc.

If you earn under R500 000 for a full year from only one employer (that’s your total salary income before tax) and have no other sources of additional income (for example, interest or rental income) and no deductions that you want to claim (for example medical expenses, travel or retirement annuities), then you don’t need to submit a return.
