KRA to celebrate, and award tax-compliant individuals and businesses Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) will on Friday 28th October 2022, recognize and celebrate companies and individual taxpayers who have been compliant in remitting their taxes during this year’s Taxpayers Day.
The event will take place at Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Nairobi, to be officiated by the President of the Republic of Kenya and Commander-in-Chief of the Defense Forces, H.E Dr. William Ruto.
Taxpayers from various sectors of the economy will be fated for their resilience and dedication towards the national development plan through payment of taxes that saw the annual revenue collection hit and surpassed the two trillion mark after KRA collected KShs. 2.031 Trillion during the Financial Year 2021/2022.
The event is a culmination of the Annual Taxpayers’ Month customarily organized in the month of October. The taxpayers’ month provides platforms and opportunities for KRA to engage critical stakeholders on tax matters. This feedback is aimed at enhancing tax processes and improving tax compliance.
“Taxpayers remain our supreme and esteemed customers and their satisfaction is the principal to our day-to-day processes and activities. It is for this reason that we set aside the month of October to celebrate and appreciate them”, Grace Wandera, Deputy Commissioner of Marketing, and Communication.
Some of the engagements during the Taxpayers’ Month include taxpayer education activities, tax summits, customer visits, and Corporate Social Responsibility activities which are meant to give back to society.
This year’s Taxpayers Month was driven by the theme ‘Leaving no one Behind’ to highlight the significance of shared nationhood and pulling together as a citizenry in determining the country’s destiny, including economic sovereignty through payment of taxes.
