Mandating Youth to File Nil Returns is Waste of Time - MP Gideon Keter

Nominated MP representing youth Gideon Keter has urged the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to do away with the filing of Nil Returns saying it's a waste of time and ironical for KRA to ask Nil Returns from jobless youth the same government has denied them opportunities. According to Keter, it's also punitive for the government to penalize youth for not disclosing they don't have money by filing Nil returns. 

Filing of KRA Nil Returns is allowed for taxpayers who do not have any source of income which means that the taxpayer does not have Business Income, Rental Income or Employment Income, thus the need to file KRA Nil Returns.

KRA penalizes individuals for not filing their returns on time, and with many youth jobless, KRA was recently forced to deactivate over 6 million inactive KRA pins. 

Gideon Keter one time found himself on the receiving end for asking the unemployed youth to work hard like a young boy from Narok who became an online sensation for mimicking Citizen TV's Jeff Koinange.
