Does anyone know when individual tax return filing season starts? Is it still 1 July?

I know there were proposals to move it to September, but I haven't seen anything official yet.

Also what was the talk of auto refunds being done from 1 June?

Taxpayers, your turn to file your tax return starts on 1 September this year. The good news is that a significant number of individual taxpayers will be auto-assessed this year, and this process will happen in August. No need to call us, we will send you an SMS if you are selected to be auto-assessed. If you accept your auto-assessment, any under or overpayment of tax will be processed as normal. If you want to edit your return, you can file your return on eFiling from 1 September

I checked on eFiling and noticed that my 2019/2020 return has been issued. The only problem is IRP5 details are not yet appearing on the assessment. As soon as I have a copy of my IRP5, I plan to complete and submit my assessment. Will keep everyone updated on what happens.

My return has been filed and flagged for an audit. Had to provide a copy if IRP5, medical aid tax certificate and vehicle logbook. This has been uploaded as well. Will update on refund as soon as this has been received.

I tried requesting my 2020 return on E-filing. It opens a pop up asking me to confirm that I am either a deceased or insolvent estate or emigrating, to continue. So it looks like I can't file yet.

It is a bad idea to file before tax season opens. It may cause differences between your IT3 and SARS 3rd party records. :)

Same, but I see that I now have 2019 as non-submitted because I was audited (and cleared).

Weird because they already gave me an ITA34 and deposited my return last year. :unsure:

Did you click the pop up confirming you are deceased, insolvent or emigrating, to continue?

I think I clicked it a few years ago before the opening of filing season and populated everything as no details were preloaded at the time. I was selected for verification, and after submitting copies of tax certificates, my IRP5 & mileages, everything was approved.
