Kenya Revenue Authority Eases Tax Compliance Certificates Issuance to Instant

Why Is It Important For Taxpayers To File Tax Returns? 

The Kenya Revenue Authority has relaxed rules for taxpayers seeking tax compliance certificates to instant issuance from its iTax portal, a simplified self-service feature that encourages transparency and efficiency.

According to KRA, the automatic issuance of TCCs will however be subject to a clean tax record.

“The new process significantly reduces the issuance timelines from a few days to minutes,” Commissioner, Domestic Taxes Department Elizabeth Meyo said in a statement.

The iTax system is now interactive to support the self-service process, where the taxpayer applies and get a (TCC) without staff intervention.

Taxpayers who have outstanding tax liabilities will be required to clear their liabilities first or apply for a payment plan on iTax to clear their liabilities.

Once the first installment on the payment plan has been received, the applicants will be required to reapply for a TCC for an approval.
