This applies to both employed and unemployed people who have KRA pins.

The unemployed files iTax Nil Returns to avoid being slapped with a Sh 20,000 penalty by KRA.

Not filing KRA Nil Returns hinders one from getting the KRA Tax Compliance Certificate that is a major requirement for employment opportunities in Kenya.

For those  who are employed, there are three items one should have  before  starting to file the KRA Returns 2018 online on iTax Portal. This is as outlined below:

  • KRA PIN
  • iTax Account Password
  • P9 Form

One obtains KRA P9 Form from their Employer.

 If you don’t know your iTax Password, you can request for it to be reset. 

There are several places one can file their returns that includes KRA website, online cyber or cybers in the neighborhood and Huduma centres.

The taxman is expecting more than four million taxpayers to submit their returns on the iTax Platform by June 30.
