The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has embraced modernisation in the age of digital transformation by launching an online portal to simplify tax-related procedures. As a result, enhancing tax compliance and broadening the tax base are now more important than ever. Nevertheless, despite these developments, some people are still ignorant of the digital tools at their disposal. This tutorial will provide you detailed directions so you can complete the process easily if you’ve had problems with KRA penalties and wish to check and pay them online.

The official government agency in charge of tax collection and other duties in Kenya is the Kenya Revenue Authority. Every citizen uses the KRA online platform, known as iTax, to manage their tax issues, and in some situations even non-residents. This includes taking care of any problems including tax fines. KRA has made it easier for people to manage their financial commitments by streamlining the process of updating fines.

For a variety of tax infractions, KRA issues fines that, if not resolved promptly, could result in further expenses. For instance, if you don’t submit your Pay As You Earn (PAYE) taxes by the deadline, you may be subject to a fine of 25% of the unpaid tax or Ksh. 10,000, whichever is greater. Other infractions have other punishments, such as late filing of returns or late payment of certain taxes.
