A food blogger took to social media to warn South Africans about limiting their ‘blesser income’, and it sparked quite the hilarious debate.
Just when you thought you’ve heard it all, you learn one might get taxed for money received by a blesser, if it exceeds a certain amount of course.
@Zizipho_ZA posted a tweet to warn other South Africans not to exceed R25k of blesser money a month in one’s bank account.
“Also tell your blessers not to deposit more than R24 999 into your account at one go as the transactions are reported and traced and your account will be monitored if this happens frequently”, she said.
She added, “FICA has a thing called the prescribed limit. Any transactions above that limit have to be reported. Stay informed.”
The posts sparked a debate, with tweeps giving their opinions about blesser money now being ‘taxed’.
“Just really find it weird that a somewhat romantic gesture can be taxed especially because the timeline of this money coming in isn't constant most of the time. I'm shocked really”, part of a tweep’s response read.
One tweep was just shocked over the fact that there were people out there who paid R25 000 to be someone’s bae.
