Sars goes after Trevor Noah's mother, Patricia Noah's assets worth R24 million (READ NOTICE)

Patricia Noah, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah’s mother, was issued with a final letter of demand by the SA Revenue Service (Sars), which is threatening to obtain an execution order to sell her assets if she fails to use methods stipulated by the revenue collector for her to pay more than R24 million in tax debt.

According to the letter, which City Press has seen, dated November 8, Noah has an outstanding tax debt stipulated as R24 219 220.

“According to the records of the SA Revenue Service, you have failed to pay your tax debt for one or more tax years and tax periods … You are requested to make full payment within days from the date of this letter of demand.

“You may, within 10 business days from the date of this letter of demand, apply for any of the following remedies: payment instalments where you are unable to pay the full amount; suspension of the debt where you intend to submit or have submitted a formal dispute; compromise of a portion of the tax where this will provide a higher return to the fiscus than liquidation, sequestration or other collection measures.

“Failure to make full payment or use the above remedies may result in the following actions and possibly others:

. Sars may appoint any third party who presently or in the future will owe you money or hold money for you to settle your tax debt with this money.

. A civil judgment being entered against you, in which case a warrant of execution may be issued for the Sheriff of the court to attach and sell your assets.”

Sars spokesperson Anton Fisher declined to comment, saying the revenue service did not discuss private taxpayer information with third parties.

It appears that Noah is in the property business under the company name PN Noah Estates.

It was previously reported that she was also the director of various companies, including Dempa Investments and Isacchar Properties.

She did not respond to a written enquiry and did not answer the phone when City Press tried to call.

A male figure who identified himself as Bongani, and who claimed to be Noah’s employee, gave City Press a landline number that rang answered.
