Filing of returns is not a new concept. Since 1992, every individual with a PIN has been required to file their income tax returns for every year of income by 30th June of the following year. This is a statutory requirement that if not met will attract penalties. Filing of returns also helps you to ascertain that what was deducted from your income as tax by your employer was actually remitted to KRA.
In August 2015, KRA issued a public notice making it mandatory for persons to file their income tax returns online via iTax, the Integrated Tax Management System. While this was meant to simplify the filing process by giving us a chance to file our tax returns from the comfort of our homes or offices, Filing of tax returns is still an uphill task for many. Probably because some of the basic concepts behind income tax filing are not clear.
