by , 04 July 2014
The 2014 tax-filing season for individual taxpayers kicked off on Tuesday (1 July) and it got off to a flying start.

According to SAnews.gov.za, SARS says it received more than 50 000 Income Tax Returns (ITR12) in less than 12 hours as the country's 2014 tax season got under way on Tuesday.

It's safe to say that number has more than doubled since then.

If you haven't filed your 2014 tax income tax return, don't fret. We have three important points we believe you should know - we promise they will help you submit your return without any hassles to meet the November 21 deadline.

Three key points you can't do without this tax season

Point #1: There's a new feature this tax season. According to iol, it's an 'inbox' on the eFiling page and it allows you to easily access all your correspondence from SARS.

Point #2: According to Mark Kingon, the head of business operations at SARS, the revenue service won't accept returns from tax practitioners who aren't registered with both SARS and one of the profession's controlling bodies.

The best way to verify your tax practitioner's registration status is to ask him for his SARS and Recognised Controlling Body registration details.

Also check out this article. It contains more ways you can use to check if your tax practitioner is registered.

Point #3: According to the iol report, SARS agents will be at SARS branches to help you fill in an electronic return. Alternatively, you can ask a SARS agent to help you telephonically or shadow you on the eFiling site. Click on the Help-You-eFile icon on the eFiling page to use this service.

If you need more information on the Help-You-eFile tool, check out this article.

There you have it. Now that you know these important points, file your 2014 tax return on time and beat the 21 November deadline.
