Mark Kingon, the acting South African Revenue Services (Sars) commissioner, said this week remains vital in wrapping up tax collection for this financial year, despite having collected more than R1 trillion in tax revenue already.
Kingon said since the suspension of former commissioner Tom Moyane, there's been some discomfort to all Sars staff, but added he has hope that the institution will stabilise.
Briefly.co.za gathered that last week, the president, Cyril Ramaphosa, placed Moyane on suspension, blaming him for bringing Sars into disrepute.
Meanwhile, Kingon told Eyewitness News he doesn't mind being a seat warmer for someone else.
“We’ve got our debt collector phoning and dealing with people on a huge scale across our organisation and that process is underway hugely and they will continue to try to collect debt until the very last minute of Thursday. It’s wonderful to be able to work with people who are committed, who are trying to do the right thing and try and get the organisation on the right path.”
