SA Government TAX Regering

 

Get the corruption money back from all State entities, as well as officials, ministers and  elites, you can build a whole country with all the scandals since 1994.  . .. . .. .
According to a tax expert, this is ‘giving Sars heart palpitations’ as it tries to make up billions of rands in revenue collection.   South Africans working abroad are in the frontline of a looming tax revolt as they cut their tax ties with this country to avoid punitive taxes that come into force from next year.

Senior tax attorney at Tax Consulting SA Jean du Toit said the reality – while former Western Cape premier Helen Zille and many others were thinking about the feasibility of a tax revolt – was that it was already too late to close the stable door.  “On a small scale, [a legal tax revolt] may be achieved by consuming zero-rated goods only, or by kicking your smoking habit and adopting a teetotaller lifestyle, thereby depriving the state of VAT and sin taxes,” he said.

Excise duties on alcohol and tobacco products is hardly small change, estimated to bring in an added R400 and R600 million, over and above what they were previously bringing in, into the state coffers this financial year. “A more drastic and far more effective, yet legal, act of defiance would be to cease your tax residency, in which case Sars would no longer have a claim to your worldwide income and capital gains,” Du Toit said.

“Arguably, it is this manifestation of a tax revolt that is currently most prevalent and the one giving Sars heart palpitations.”   An economy barely keeping its nose above water has many looking abroad.

“The expat landscape changed when the amendment to the Income Tax Act was promulgated, which means that, from March 1 2020, expats would be liable for tax in South Africa on their foreign employment income insofar as it exceeds R1 million,” Du Toit said.

“National Treasury and Sars forged ahead with the amendment, despite being forewarned of the possible consequences.   This forced the hand of many expats, who have now decided to cease their tax residency, specifically to avoid being caught by the amendment,” Du Toit said.   That a thinning herd of irate taxpayers are fed up with decades of funding the gravy train is evident in the numbers.

According to Sars, SA has 21 million individuals registered for income tax according to its latest (2018) stats on its website.

However, in February Treasury predicted a shortfall of R42.8 billion, R15.4 billion more than the R27.4 billion shortfall predicted last year.

Sars head Edward Kieswetter acknowledged last week that South Africans were withholding the taxman’s cut – which could see SA shaking a tin at the door of the International Monetary Fund.

Kieswetter said falling trust in the collector, by individuals and companies, had led to rising levels of tax avoidance and fraud, bleeding billions from government.

“When public trust wanes, as is the current case, then taxpayers feel morally justified to withhold or manipulate their taxes,” Kieswetter said.

“When revenue collection is undermined, it traps us in a vicious cycle of revenue decline … and consequently the need to go with begging bowls to borrow money, which effectively mortgages our future.

“The taxpayers who seem to be leaving our shores are some of those relatively high earners on whom Sars relies quite heavily,” Kieswetter said.

A notorious example of an ongoing tax revolt in this regard is e-tolls – one which objectively speaking is quite successful.

“Under a tax revolt, one may broadly identify two types of taxpayers; those who simply do not and never have paid taxes, perhaps out of disdain for the very concept thereof and those who, from some misguided sense of virtue, feel justified in discontinuing their tax obligations.

“In the latter case, the taxpayer somehow legitimises their behaviour, often because they do not think they have to contribute to a leaky bucket, or they feel they have already contributed more than their fair share,” he said.

Asof hulle nie genoeg maak uit ons burgers se belastings nie, word daar misdaad gepleeg en 15% VAT word op meeste versekerings en mediese uitgawes aan regering en hul agente betaal.   Sonder dat hul ‘n vinger hoef te lig.   Praat nie van al die werksgeleenthede wat verskaf word deur ons burgers, wat veiligheidsmaatreëls in plek moet kry vir ons eie beveiliging, terwyl al die ministers en politici handevol sekuriteitswagte om hul het.

Dit is die ANC en hul kommunistiese vennote wat B-BBEE ingestel het, maar ook dit is nie nou genoeg nie, nou wil hulle nog ‘n trappie verder gaan.

Die ANC is juis die oorsaak van B-BBEE en dit sluit ook die vorige regering hierby in, want dit is wat hulle onderhandel het.

Die ANC regering is verantwoordelik vir al die misdaad, korrupsie en moorde, en tog word daar nou weer gegryp na harde werkers wat nie een sent van die ANC regering ontvang as hulle die land verlaat nie.

Wat van al die dreigemente van onteiening wat die regeringsleiers en ander politici daagliks oor dreig.   Hulle haat die blankes maar tog, is hul geld en inkomstebelasting welkom.

Wat so ironies is, ons blankes kry nie werk in Suid-Afrika nie, daarom gaan hulle landuit.  Heelwat aan landuit oor veiligheidsredes, omrede die ANC nie belangstel om misdaad vas te vat nie, omdat hulself ‘n 15% VAT op alle misdaadverwante dade (soos inbrake, kapings, mediese sorg, dood ens) inkry.

Nie een van die werkers wat oorsee is, wat deel van ons blankes is, werk dieselfde ure as hulle in Suid-Afrika was nie, omrede daar ander tye ook vereis word, soos, as jy op ‘n plaas of gastehuis werksaam is, word dit hier 8-10 ure per dag, terwyl dit oorsee baie langer ure is.

Werkers word genoodsaak om aan te pas by daardie land waarheen hul gaan en waar werksgeleenthede is.

Die regering bied ook nie enige hulp aan vlieg onkostes en ander uitgawes, heelwat moet totaal en al behuising van vooraf begin.

Hoekom moet die regering wat jou verwilder weens onveiligheid en swart bemagtiging ( B-BBEE) asook onteiening, nou weer ‘n hap kry.    Al daardie werkers betaal reeds belasting aan daardie nuwe  land.

Is dit nou sodat die elites nie kan lewe sonder hul inkomstes nie, want daar is nie net 400 parlementslede nie, maar ook 8840 tradisionele leiers plus SOE en provinsies/ munisipale amptenare, plus al die vorige tuislande, wat of trustgebiede geword het, of andersinds grondeise het CPA’s geword en almal kry salarisse, paleise word onderhou, selfs vroue word onderhou, sowel voertuie, drywers en selfone.  Onthaaltoelaes ook, veral by die konings en koninginne.   Al hierdie ou tuislande het steeds hul ou gebiede behou, net ‘n ander naam en wetgewing.  Kultuurhuise is ook vir hulle opgerig.
