Taxpayers deleted from tax practitioner profiles

FISA received the following communication from Stakeholder Relations at SARS:

“Dear Valued Stakeholders

Kindly take note of the following and distribute widely amongst your members:

  • We are finding many cases where TPs are deleting taxpayers on their eFiling profile but are still receiving correspondence for taxpayer they no longer represent.
  • It is important that where a tax practitioner ceases to represent a taxpayer, that the tax practitioner update contact details prior to deleting the taxpayer to ensure there is no reference to the practitioners e mail address and other contact details.
  • Tax Practitioners are reminded to not insert their contact details in the taxpayer specific information fields.

With warm regards

Karin Smit
