I meant to blog this about a month ago but forgot…
Son no 2 (19 years old) lives in Dubai. I asked my auditors to take care of his personal tax filing so they sent him a one pager form to fill in.
It was a basic form asking relevant tax related questions such as :
- ID Number
- Date of Birth
- Tax Number
- Single / Married
- COP / ANC
So a few days later I get this call from Dubai – he is filling in the form and is rather annoyed -What right does SARS (South African Revenue Services) have to ask him what party he votes for? He has asked his collegues at work as well and they all agree with him.
He had no idea what COP / ANC meant and I had to explain the different marital regimes to him.
