Many argue that while tax compliance is crucial, the methods and timing of enforcement should consider the nuances of each situation. The case of Zahara has reignited these debates, prompting calls for a more empathetic approach from tax authorities.

During his interview on ‘Podcast and Chill with Sol Phenduka,’ South African radio personality Tbo Touch weighed in on the contentious issue of SARS (South African Revenue Service) demanding money from the late singer Zahara.

Tbo Touch emphasized the critical importance of engaging with SARS to devise a feasible repayment plan. Drawing from his own experiences with the tax authority, he highlighted that proactive communication with SARS can prevent severe financial repercussions.

One of the key points Tbo Touch made was regarding the government’s claim over 20% of every citizen’s assets. He explained how this policy has far-reaching implications not only for individuals during their lifetime but also for their estates after death. This sparked a significant conversation about estate duties and the financial responsibilities that persist even after one’s passing.
