My theory is that the kind of borrowing that we have now is intended to indirectly transfer wealth from private hands to public, legally.... This is because the loans are taken to develop public infrastructure (albeit not economically viable and not necessarily at the speed they are executed), then all kinds of taxes and painful tax collection enforcement laws put in place to ensure that even Mama Mboga pays tax to pay back these loans.... then there will not be significant "New Wealth" that was introduced and encouraged in Kibaki era... we are back to the pre 2000s poverty and it will be easy to rule poor sheep for ever! Like today, I have received several emails from KRA: Likes these:

Dear Taxpayer,

A tax refund is a reimbursement of excess tax paid in a given period. Upon filling an individual income tax return, a tax refund may arise from;

  1. Insurance policies on life and education that have not been granted relief by the employer on the same,
  2. Having a mortgage from a specific financial institution (as listed on the 4th schedule on Income Tax Act), and has not been granted relief by the employer on the same,
  3. A resident individual who was not granted personal relief during the year,
  4. If tax deducted at source was paid in excess of final liability.
Taxpayers can apply for tax refund within five years from the date in which tax was paid through https://itax.kra.go.ke/KRA-Portal/.
For queries or further assistance, please call us on 0711 099 999 or send us an email through callcentre@kra.go.ke.

Kindly note that a VAT registered taxpayer can register for Turnover Tax (TOT) if they meet the TOT requirements. When filing the TOT return, the value for computation of turnover tax for a taxpayer registered for VAT, is the amount net of VAT.

Dear Taxpayer,

This is what you need to know on Instalment Tax:

Instalment Tax is an estimated income tax paid periodically, in anticipation of the tax payable for the year of income. It is a form of advance tax.

The instalments are spread evenly at 25% of the tax due and payable on the 20th day of the 4th, 6th, 9th and 12th months of the year of income for all taxpayers.

Balance of tax should be paid by end of the 4th month after the year-end. E.g. by 30th April for December year-end cases.

For queries or further assistance, call 0711 099 999 or send us an email to callcentre@kra.go.ke


Regards,

Commissioner for Domestic Taxes.

The Kenya Revenue Authority recognizes and appreciates your valuable contribution to Kenya’s revenue mobilization.

Uhuru is a coward. That's why he don military regalia ndio astuwe watu. Ground has shifted.
I think he has been trying to avoid doing what his father's system did where a few top politicians literally were dispatched.... But where he looks like a coward, he is actually lethal when it comes to other measures within the law like impoverishing you through the taxman and DPP, DCI

Do you know what a TAX is?
Nice thinking... perhaps we need to start from there.... very unfortunate that people do not understand that they pay taxes everyday... Taxation 101: Indirect taxes: like VAT: Do you take alcoholic beverages? If so, do you know that over 80% of the cost is tax for KRA? Okay, you do not drink beers but drink sodas: Do you know that over 40% of it is tax? Okay you do not drink these things but buy Dasani Water... do you know that over 40% of the price is tax? Okay, if not, you buy bread... have you seen VAT? What does it mean here? Do you ride a motor bike or are driven in a matatu? The fare you pay is used to pay for fuel and other machinery to keep the machines running.... Do you know that over 80% of fuel is tax? This assumes that you are not in formal employment and if so, your employer pays you less than the minimum salary for tax deduction or he simply evades taxes....
