Missed revenue target highlights uphill battle at Sars
The R1.287-trillion estimate released on Monday is R57.4bn or 4.3% less than the initial mark

Sars, which collects the taxes that the government uses to fund services from education to defence, said revenue collection fell about R15bn short of the government’s revised target for 2018/2019, announced by finance minister Tito Mboweni in his budget less than two months ago.
