How to File Income Tax Return (KRA) in Kenya
With insight into the roles of tax agents in Kenya, we can now look at another common concept, which is filing tax returns. In every fiscal year, every taxpayer in Kenya is required to file their returns. However, only half or a quarter of the population at large do this. This is because most citizens are not conversant with the filing returns process. Here is a step by step guide on how to file KRA returns on iTax:
Step 1: Log in to iTax site or the KRA iTax portal
You can only access the site using your PIN and password. There is a simple arithmetic calculation you will be required to complete. It is straightforward. It could, for instance, 11 + 6.
