Many laws are unjust and should be disobeyed.
Apartheid was an example of unjust laws, just like taxation is unjust especially if those funds gets misappropriated.
Tax law is not unjust. It's in fact unjust for others to pay their share while guy gets to dodge the system and not pay. He uses the countries resources (roads, electoral system plus many other things) that others now have to pay for, and he don't.

The irony of this is, even if you right and the money be colected, that type of fraud/corruption is from the bottom upwards, and although its wrong, and was always being tolerated and procecuted world over for many years, it is not the biggest type of fraud/corruption, not the type that destroyes societies, the middle class and the poor. The most harmfull long term fraud/corruption comes from the other direction, that is from the Top down to the bottom, there is just no comparison between the two types of direction, as long as you understand this, I am happy with whatever you do in this regard.
Crime is crime. Whether it comes from the top or the bottom. We should criticize both. It's like the guy in the car complaining about the lawless taxis while jumping the red light at 80 in a 60 zone with his phone in his hand driving an unroadworthy car. Both are wrong.

He pays for the important things. Those are all charged separately.... Feul levy, property tax, vat...

The state and useless poor people are the burden. This guy is smart enough to not contribute to the real burden, that doesn't make him the burden. The burden remains the state and useless poor people.
I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people richer than you so you should maybe not draw attention to yourself - you're obviously a burden to them.

What's the procedure to object legally?

He still pay taxes for all the services that he actually use. Property tax, feul levy, VAT. Utilities, he contributes more than his fair share.
Geez oke. Get with the program. Sure taxes are not always spent appropriately, but without taxes there wouldn't even be a proper road to his/her business' location. Or to his home. There wouldn't be a police force and then it'd well and truly be the wild West here. Not an easy environment to profitably or safely do business or live in.

Things are not always ideal, but we all get immense benefit from being part of an organised society, taxes and all. I too feel that some taxes can be better spent, but ultimately that is a long fight. In the meantime we all have to take the good with the bad. The alternative is the worst. Think New Delhi slum bad. Probably worse since there would likely not even be electricity or running water at all. Anywhere. Any time.

Lol, Rietrot arguing his income tax evasion case before the tax commissioner, "yes but I pay the important taxes just not income tax"

Clang goes the door on his cell, hallelujah said 99% of Mybb!

I have yet to meet the type of person that behaves as described in the op that wasn't a slimeball. Plenty small businesses try the whole no receipt unless you ask for one trick to bypass the books, but the people that completely refuse anything but cash and outright refuse to give receipts, they are the legit slimeballs.

Which was been corroborated by the fact his security guards only get paid R2500 a month, the guy isn't making a conscientious refusal to pay tax he's just a leech/freeloader on society.

If theres no receips and its cash only its unlikely SARS can do anything unless they set up a sting. Then they will only be able to prove he evaded tax on that income received during the sting operation. The amount of "millions" can hardly be proved in this case

Nah, lifestyle audit is the beginning. Can't explain how you got 'x' well then you can choose 1) Criminal Gains 2) Tax evasion. SARS still will nail you with the right motivation.

What if he/she didnt spend the money on anything they can find? Lifestyle audits assume you've bought assets that they can see

If the guy is sharp he would have secreted all the money into family members assets/accounts, so it makes it harder but typically these guys end up slipping up somewhere. There's only so much cash you can hoard under the mattress.

There's plenty of ways to move money around without a paper trail, I guarantee you that anyone pocketing 50k a week in cash has researched this subject in great detail

He/She runs a business and getting +/- R50 000 a week. There is no proof since customers don't get a receipt and he never issues one even if you insist.

I don't want to go into the specifics because he might be alarmed.

I need to report him to SARS because:

1. What he/she is doing is a crime
2. Sometimes it's difficult to prove to him/her that you paid because there is no receipt
3. Not a nice person (pays his/her two security guards R2 500 per month after working 12 hours a day/night six days a week, to accommodate a day off there is a day they work 24 hrs)

How do I report him to sars, follow up on progress and still remain anonymous?

This is a slam dunk case for the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court.
Also, since he employ's security gaurds you can report him to the security officers board. https://www.psira.co.za/psira/

All that is needed is a suspicion and an audit will reveal the extent if any.
