SARS’ AI-Enhanced Audit Capabilities Wreaking Havoc on Taxpayers

In a world slowly being taken over by AI, the South African Revenue Service has capitalised on this trend, enhancing their Audit capabilities to more than just a “quick count”, but rather proportions beyond anything previously thought possible!

Imagine having historically filed all your tax returns on time, making good on your dues to SARS, and your Compliance Status reflecting as fully compliant. Now imagine waking up to a Notification of Audit and Request for Relevant Material, “based on risk(s) detected”.
