Residents to pay taxes directly to the bank

27 February 2014, 11:16 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County Chief Officer of Finance, Kapaiya Torome has said the county residents will be paying their revenue directly to the bank.

Torome said that the new system is easier and will help the county to generate more revenue.

He said that the system will bridge all loopholes in the collection of tax in the county.

“Automation is the new process where the public will start paying their revenue directly to the banks because we want to lock all loopholes of squandering public money,” he said.

Speaking to the media in Nakuru town Wednesday, Torome said that the new process of revenue collection will start this week in a bid to meet the revenue target of KES 2.5 billion before the end of this financial year.

He pointed that the county was yet to meet its revenue target since tax collectors were not forwarding the full amount to the head offices.

The Chief Officer of Finance said that plans are also underway for car owners to be paying their parking fees directly to the bank using mobile phones.

“We want to meet our county revenue collection target before the end of this financial year and we believe simplifying the process of paying tax will come in handy,” he said.

At the same time, Torome said that there is shortage of accountants in the county finance docket and that they are going to employ 15 people to improve service delivery.

He said that once the new accountants are employed, they will be in charge of revenue collection in the county.
