f you have forgotten your tax number you can request it from SARS in various ways:
  • You can get it on eFiling if you are registered as an eFiler. All you need to do is log on and check your number
  • You can request it verbally from the SARS Contact Centre on 0800 00 7277. Please have your ID number on hand as SARS will have to authenticate who you are. Please note that you can’t request your notice of registration from the SARS Contact Centre, only at a SARS branch.
  • Or you can visit your nearest SARS branch to get it. Please take along your ID.
Top Tip:
SARS will not provide your tax number to another person, unless the person is your tax practitioner or has power of attorney to conduct your tax affairs.
