    Hi Tyron,

    Tax practitioners cannot just provide any request authorisation as it may be requested by an unauthorised individual, send a written letter stating you are requesting access can they release, I believe after 5 declines e-filing automatically provides you with a override code, however going into your local SARS branch with the required documents will also get you back your control, in future for personal income taxation use shared access to tax practitioners

    Kind regards
    Francois

    In my opinion the contact details of the client is listed there, nothing prevents the tax practitioner from contacting the client and asking.

    It is unethical to withhold a clients efiling profile from them.

    Did you include your contact details in your request? Perhaps the tax practitioner doesn't know it's you requesting your own tax.

    If you did, I suggest you contact the tax practitioner and find out why your request is being declined. It's unethical, but some tax practitioners decline a request when the client owes them money. If that is the case and you were unaware of the debt, pay them and get access to your tax. If the tax practitioner is just being malicious, call SARS or go to a branch and request that your tax be removed from the holding practitioner's profile.

    It's not just unethical but a criminal offence according to SARS to withhold an efiling profile transfer. Think it's in terms of section 234 of tax administration act.

    While I share tax practitioner’s frustrations when there are still debts outstanding, you are not even allowed to withhold when the client still owes you. We received this mail recently:
