In Summary

  • KRA, in a statement to newsrooms on Thursday, stated that their offices will remain open throughout until Sunday.
  • The authority further urged taxpayers to file their tax returns from their comfort zones using the iTax platform.

The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has now extended their working hours to enable Kenyans complete payments and PIN holders file their tax returns ahead of the June 30, 2019 deadline.

KRA, in a statement to newsrooms on Thursday, stated that their offices will remain open throughout until Sunday.

“The offices comprises all Customs offices including Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and iTax Service Centers countrywide to facilitate taxpayers to pay and file their 2018 and other prior annual tax returns,” read the statement by Deputy Commissioner, Marketing and Communication Grace Wandera.

“Customs offices supporting port operations are open 24 hours to facilitate customs services whereas the iTax Service Centers will operate from 7:00AM-9:00 PM. The Contact Centre shall be operational from 6:00AM-12:00 Midnight.”

The authority further urged taxpayers to file their tax returns from their comfort zones using the iTax platform.

“All taxpayers are therefore encouraged to utilize all these platforms to ensure that they remain compliant and avoid penalties for late or failure to submit a tax return. This will enable them to acquire Tax Compliance Certificate (TCC), which is a critical document in accessing services,” added the statement.
