For various reasons, employees may find that they have to pay in fairly large amounts of tax to SARS on assessment at the end of a tax year. To reduce the amount payable on assessment or avoid having to pay in an additional amount, employees may request (in writing) that their employers deduct from their remuneration a greater amount of employees’ tax than is required.
