Kingon reappointed as acting Sars commissioner

Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has reappointed Mark Kingon as acting South African Revenue Service (Sars) commmissioner for a further period of 90 days effective 14 March 2019 until 11 June 2019 or until such date as the president appoints a new commissioner - whichever occurs earlier.

Section 7 of the Sars Act empowers the minister of finance to appoint an acting commissioner. The president, however, appoints a permanent commissioner.

“Minister Mboweni has thanked Mr Kingon for continuing to avail himself to serve Sars in the capacity of acting commissioner. The National Treasury remained available to provide any assistance Mr Kingon may require,” said the ministry.

Kingon was initially appointed as acting commissioner in March 2018 after the then commissioner Tom Moyane was placed on suspension and then subsequently fired.
