Mark Kingon has been appointed as an acting South African Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner for another 90-day period by the Finance Minister Tito Mboweni.
While President Cyril Ramaphosa keeps searching for a new person to head the revenue service on an ongoing basis, Kingon is going to step into the fourth term as an acting head of SARS.
Last month, Tito Mboweni appointed a seven-member panel headed by Trevor Manuel. The group was expected to interview and shortlist SARS commissioner candidates. Manuel was helped by Judge Dennis Davis of the Davis Tax Committee and Treasury deputy Director-General Ismael Momoniat.
Mark Kingon was appointed as a Revenue Service’s commissioner a year ago.
