Deadline for filing tax returns extended

02 July 2015, 11:42 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) Commissioner General, John Njiraini extended the deadline for filing taxes by two days.

Njiraini, who was speaking in an interview on a local TV station on Wednesday said the deadline has been moved to Friday this week.

Most Kenyans had requested KRA to extend the deadline that elapsed on Tuesday night after experiencing difficulties with the online filing system.

However, Njiraini said they do not intend to punish taxpayers with the iTax system.

“We are encouraging as many Kenyans as possible to get onto the iTax platform to help us reduce the inconveniences the taxpayers go through in accessing tax services and also minimize the workload of processing manual documents,” Njiraini said.

He added that special consideration would be given to those who will be able to file their tax returns by Friday, including waivers for those who would be able to file their returns within the new extension.

He revealed that more than 600 000 Kenyans had filed their returns by last week Friday and KRA is now seeking to achieve its new revenue collection target of KES 1.35 trillion.
