Cabinet has also reminded taxpayers, who still have to submit their tax returns, that the 22 November 2013 deadline for the electronic filing of individual tax returns for the 2012/13 tax year is fast approaching.
It commended the more than 3.6 million taxpayers who have filed their tax returns to date, helping government to provide much-needed services to improve the lives of all South Africans.
“South Africa is a much better place today than it was in 1994 due to the growing number of individuals and companies who are willing and able to contribute to the public purse, from which services and amenities are funded,” said Chabane.
