Summary
If you make R 666 000 a year living in South Africa, you will be taxed R 169 842. That means that your net pay will be R 496 158 per year, or R 41 347 per month. Your average tax rate is 25.5% and your marginal tax rate is 39.0%. This marginal tax rate means that your immediate additional income will be taxed at this rate. For instance, an increase of R 100 in your salary will be taxed R 39, hence, your net pay will only increase by R 61.
