iTaxThere is no escaping the great leaps in technology and just about everyone is now either on that bandwagon or making active plans to get onto it. In 2012, Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) realized the power and importance of digital operations and started the process of digitizing the tax filing system. This is the system that was launched in April this year and is commonly known as iTax.

iTax is a secure web-enabled application system that provides a fully-integrated and automated solution for administration of domestic taxes.  It enables taxpayer internet based PIN registration, returns filing, payment registration to allow for tax payments and status inquiries with real-time monitoring of accounts.

This system is set to revolutionize the taxation process by curbing tax evasion, reducing corruption and allowing for timely and convenient remittance of taxes. This process has in the past been honestly just tiring and cumbersome for many.

Members of the public still have quite a lot of questions about the iTax system and indeed taxation as a whole and towards that, we have partnered with KRA to have them over at our offices to take the audience through the system. We will get to know how it works and how we as individuals and the wider economy stand to benefit from the same, and members of the audience will be able to ask questions that have always nagged them about taxation. On the panel will be David Mutoro Busaule and Kenneth Ruttoh, both of KRA.

We’ll be hosting this event tomorrow from 5.30 to 8.00pm. Register here and plan to attend this very informative forum.

The KRA iTax team will also be present to help you file your tax returns and with other enquiries at the same venue, so please remember to carry your P9 form.
