KRA set to honour and award compliant taxpayers

NAIROBI, Kenya, October 1 – The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) will on Monday launch the annual Taxpayer’s month to appreciate compliant taxpayers for their dutiful tax remittance.

The event, which will be throughout October, was organized to appreciate taxpayer’s contribution to the government’s revenue collection efforts that enabled the authority to meet the target.

“The event, which is organized to appreciate taxpayers for their selfless contribution towards the country’s development agenda, will be marked by a long month of customer-centric activities countrywide,” read a statement from the authority.

It would be marked with a taxpayers award ceremony, officiated by President Uhuru Kenyatta that would recognize and award distinguished taxpayers for their exemplary tax compliance in the year 2020.

The event is expected to encourage other taxpayers to comply with the deadlines and file their returns on time.

“The event also acts as a platform to encourage citizens to be tax compliant, fund the national budget and sustain the economy,” KRA said.

It would involve a month-long period of customer-centric activities countrywide such as taxpayer appreciation visits, taxpayer education, annual tax summit, and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)  activities.

KRA further urged the public to participate in the month’s activities for a chance to engage with the Authority and give out their opinion on some of the authority’s regulations.

“Through participation, taxpayers will have an opportunity to give feedback on various tax issues that will enable Authority to enhance service delivery,” it said.
