Kenya Revenue Authority took on its social platforms to announce that nill returns of this year will be filled as it has been the case in previous years.
Nil returns are filled by a taxpayer to the taxman(KRA) indicating that his income is below the tax range and therefore did not pay tax for that particular year.
The automated system has however been reported to be undergoing a system reconfiguration.In a statement,KRA said that “The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) would like to advise taxpayers who file NIL returns to be patient as our technical team works on reconfiguring the iTax system to facilitate you better,”
KRA tax system
KRA reported a total of 2.4 million workers and business filled their return in the last June deadline.
Even though million fill,many Kenyans have however complained about the system numerous downtime due to technical issues.
Some have even complained about how complex it is although they still have to fill as failure to do so attract a minimum penalty of Ksh 1000.
I-tax has come handy and helped many to file their returns and meet deadlines as stipulated by KRA.
