If you have forgotten your tax number you can request it from SARS in various ways:

  • 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.
  • You can also request your notice of registration via the MobiApp if you are a registered eFiler.
  • eFiling has been updated to allow taxpayers to request the Notice of Registration (IT150) under the ‘SARS Registered Details’ menu option.
  • At a SARS branch.

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.
