How much tax will I pay on my pension resignation benefit?


My pension resignation benefit is R2 173 774. If I resign at the age of 51, how much tax will I pay on the above mentioned figure?



You will be taxed per the withdrawal lump sum tax table. Assuming you have not previously withdrawn from a retirement fund, you will pay tax of R643 509 and get out R1 530 265. If your pay-out includes any contribution you made that were not permitted as a tax deduction, this would be returned to you tax-free (ie it would increase your pay-out).
