Kenya Revenue Authority Hits e-Tax Filing Record

The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has welcomed a major milestone reached in the area of tax administration after it recorded the registration of two million iTax users.

The KRA's iTax platform is an online secure application system, which was first piloted two years ago and commissioned in mid-2014. It provides a fully-integrated and automated solution for the administration of domestic taxes.

Apart from tax returns, the KRA has migrated a variety of its services to the platform, including PIN registration, the processing of tax compliance certificate applications and issuances, and the filing and processing of value-added tax refunds.

KRA Commissioner General John Njiraini said the platform managed to net a daily average of 50,000 new individual users in June this year.

"At the KRA, we are encouraged by the iTax uptake that is one of our key transformation platforms as we strive to simplify and raise efficiency in tax administration," Njiraini added.
