I'm convinced that many people consider tax returns _'kazi ya watu wako na job...or biashara'_, but I listened to radio as a KRA official reminded Kenyans that *'AS LONG AS you have a KRA PIN Number', you are obligated to file a return.*  So please, do not forget or skip filing your returns this year, even if its NIL.  And let the person next to you know that as well.

A lawyer will tell you that this is important if you don't want to pay extra amounts as fines with interest on your tax.

The fine for not filing your  annual tax returns has increased from Sh1000 to Sh20,000 as from next month. 

The deadline as set by Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) is 30th June 2017 for every tax payer to have filed their returns.

No one is expemted as long as they have a KRA pin certificate.
