Steer clear of these actions when filing your 2014 tax return or face two years in jail

Experts behind the Practical Tax Loose Leaf Service say, if you file a return without authority and:

#1: Submit a return or any other document to SARS under a forged signature;

#2: Use someone else's electronic or digital signature in any electronic communication to SARS; or

#3: Submit a communication to SARS on behalf of someone else without their permission, you'll be found guilty of an offence and be subject to a fine or face two years jail time.

That's right.

These actions could land you in jail for two years.

Make sure you avoid these criminal offences to ensure you aren't sent to jail.

Now that you know the acts you must avoid when filing your tax return, file your tax return sooner rather than later to avoid the rush come November.

And remember, the easiest way to file your return is online via eFiling. You don't have to stand in long queues or risk delays.
