Revenue expecting SA ‘last-minute rush’

The agency said it had received 6.4 million of the 9.1 million returns sent out, with just a week to go until the 31 January deadline.

But it said the number of returns it was receiving on a daily basis has doubled recently to over 120,000.

A Revenue spokeswoman told ‘The figures are very similar to last year, and if that continues to be the case we expect to receive in the region of 300,000 returns a day in a last minute rush to file on time.’

Meanwhile, just 61,836 returns have so far been filed electronically.
