    What to do when SARS eFiling won’t work with Chrome

    Tax season is open for individuals, and SARS is encouraging citizens to use its eFiling system.

    The SARS eFiling website is “optimally viewed in Internet Explorer versions 8+ browsers”, and requires the “latest version of Adobe Flash player and Adobe Reader”, said SARS.
    Lol SARS being 10 years behind the times.

    It really won't give you cooties to use it for this one thing (Windows 10 has IE, just for search internet explorer)

    Well, efiling is about 10 years old now isn't it?

    I'd imagine it would cost a fair amount of money to change the tech behind it... I'd rather my tax money be used elsewhere and I'll just use flash once a year.

    It won't work with Chrome, or does the PDF side not work?

    Only thing your tax money is used on is helping Zuma get to Dubai.

    You assume everyone runs Windows.

    Apparently so do SARS.

    As a geek it doesn’t bother me much but I can imagine it being a nightmare for a “normal” person.

    It really should just work.

    As a geek, it annoys the everloving **** out of me, to be forced to use Adobe Acrobat, when the PDF standard itself, as implemented by all the other PDF viewers, is perfectly adequate for SARS' purposes, but they decided to make use of a proprietary extension that only Adobe has implemented!
