    Hi All

    I know I'm asking the impossible, but how long does it take before you get your tax return? I know if all is well it takes up 3 days, but mine always seems to go for auditing, only they know as it's only personal tax with car allowance. Is there a limit as to how long they can sit with it?

    Thanks.

    They are getting very strict on car allowances so that might be why yours is taking so long.

    Thanks Guys

    Rory, did you have vehicle allowance?

    Marius, but what do they actually do? I mean, they've got my logbook?

    Filed Wednesday morning, money in my bank Friday night.
    More than 10000 is automatically audited. And mine was more.

    No car allowance on my IRP5. But I do claim my car. Not even logbook. Just start and end KM.

    This year I do have a logbook.

    Don't worry, you are just being audited. I am every year, but always get the money. Get worried if they ask for paperwork.
