SECTION A: Non-provisional taxpayers
You will be a non-provisional taxpayer if:
1. You're younger than 65 on the last day of the tax year and don't have any business income. But only if your taxable income is less than the threshold per year and if your taxable income from interest, dividends and rent from properties is less than R20 000 per year
2. You're 65 or older on the last day of the tax year and their taxable income is less than R120 000 for the year. Also, the income mustn't be in the form of business income and it mustn't come from any other form other than remuneration, interest, property rental or dividends.
Because some of you are no longer a provisional taxpayer anymore, your remuneration now falls under PAYE.
SECTION B: Provisional taxpayers
You're a provisional taxpayer if:
1. You earn income from a source other than a formal job;
2. You're a company;
3. You earn more than R20 000 in taxable income on interest or dividends on investments. It can also be income from renting properties or running a private business. It all qualifies for provisional tax.
