SARS eFiling now accessible to visually impaired taxpayers

Press release: received on Wednesday, 24 August, 2016.

SARS is proud to announce that our eFiling Mobisite is now accessible to blind and partially sighted taxpayers. Blind taxpayers who rely on screen-reading software will now be able to navigate the mobisite on their mobile devices, PC or laptop.
The revamped website will also benefit partially sighted taxpayers, since it offers improved contrast and is able to adapt to the user’s choice of screen colour (for example, high contrast black which displays white text on a black background).
This development means that visually impaired taxpayers will now be able to complete and submit their Income Tax Returns (ITR12) while previously this may have been challenging without sighted assistance.
Simply visit www.sarsefiling.mobi from the mobile device, PC or laptop that has the screen-reader software installed to start eFiling.
