Do I Need To Pay Income Tax?

​DO I NEED TO PAY INCOME 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 R350 000 for a full year from 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.
Corporate tax includes tax paid by companies or close corporations, as well as trusts, on their annual income.
Most of the State’s income is derived from Income Tax (personal and corporate tax), although nearly a third of total revenue from national government taxes comes from indirect taxes, primarily Value-Added Tax (VAT).
