KRA pushes for early filing of tax returns

Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has urged employers to issue P9 certificates to their workers to facilitate filing of 2018 individual income tax returns in time and avoid penalties.

The income tax returns for the year 2018 are due for submission as from January 1 to June 30. Last year, over 3.2 million taxpayers filed their returns in time through the iTax system, according to the taxman.

“KRA has enhanced iTax to have an auto-populated return of employment income.
