I do appreciate that you audit taxpayers, especially the non-compliant,
non-paying taxpayers. I appreciate that you try to get as many of the income earning individuals to pay their taxes. I especially love it when you get someone who has never paid taxes, even though they live in mansions. I don’t like paying their taxes for them.
However, it serious frustrates me when you audit an 80 year old woman because she withdrew R50 000 from her very own investment. When I let you know it’s for personal use and you want detail, I feel like splitting up into bra’s and panties and other womanly expenses.
She doesn’t have to explain R50 000 to you. Regardless what she did with it. It’s not taxable. No donations tax. Niks. Nothing. Nada.
Please spend your time, money and resources on something more valid.
