SARS is ringing in changes.

Earlier this month, it introduced a new Income Tax Return for Trusts.

Now, it’s announced that it will introduce changes to dispute forms and the objection process.

Read on to find out when exactly this big change will happen so you can comply.

What you need to know about SARS’ planned changes regarding the dispute forms

According to SARS, from December 2014, the dispute or objection forms and process will change.
On its website, SARS explains that all saved or pending income tax dispute forms, Notice of Objection (NOO) or Notice of Appeal (NOA), will be deleted from eFiling after 5 December 2014.
This means taxpayers, who haven’t submitted their forms (NOO or NOA) by 5 December 2014, will need to manually transfer the information to the updated NOO or NOA, which will be available in December 2014.
At this stage, this is all SARS is saying about the changes. We suspect it will release a detailed update closer to the date.

If you aren’t clear about the purpose of dispute forms, here’s what you need to know

If you disagree with SARS’ actions, or its findings, you can object and reach a resolution.
You do this by completing and submitting the NOO form. And you must submit the form within 30 days of the date of assessment.
When you submit your objection, you must include a letter stating your reasons for filing your objection.
If SARS rejects your objection, you have the right to appeal. And you must complete and submit an NOA form to do this. You have to deliver your appeal within 30 days after SARS notifies you that it’s disallowed your objection.
