I pay about 100 in income taxes each year. Is it worth it for me to open an SRS account? Can I instead of paying taxes use the tax to pay my SRS account?

Tax Relief, just mean reduction of assessable income. It is not a tax rebate.

If you pay $100 to your SRS, you only reduce your tax by $2. This is because your income tax rate is only 2%.

Did u mean u paid $100 for each tax year? That means your taxable income is $25,000. You will need to get $5k in tax relief to negate the $100. That means you have to topup $5000 into your srs/cpf special account.
