While tax filing season is underway in South Africa, many workers at the country’s tax regulator have been on an indefinite strike. This indefinite strike has been temporarily suspended as unions return to the bargaining table.


The annual tax season commenced on 1 July and is in full swing. For most taxpayers, this time of the year is usually associated with a considerable amount of stress as they deal with the pressure of having to file returns by a deadline and then worry about whether and how much they will have to pay over to the government in taxes. Then there is also the ever-present fear of being audited, which adds another layer of anxiety to the mix.

While the country's tax regulator has geared up for a busy tax filing season, workers around the county have downed tools in protest. This comes as SARS kicked off their tax season just last week.

It has been one week since South African taxpayers across the country began submitting their tax returns. For some, they will qualify to receive a refund from the country’s tax collector. But how long will they wait?
