Using TaxTim is like using a calculator - if you put it in wrong, it will come out wrong.
Here's what you should do:`
- Look at each page of the tax return carefully and double check that you did not enter the same amount twice somewhere or in different places.
- Also if you have various allowances on which you claim, there may be a refund - however make sure the expenses you claim are in the tax return correct. Or if you haven%u2019t claimed any expenses this can cause a tax payment.
- It only takes one typing mistake with Tim's questions and it reflects in your tax return.
- From all your tax certificates and info used to complete Tim%u2019s questions, make sure it reflects on the tax return and that nothing reflects twice.
Hope you find the error.
