Deadline is fast approaching. This is how to file KRA nil returns in just two minutes

There are only a few weeks remaining before KRA ends the filing exercise. Did you know that you are at risk of having your KRA pin deregistered should you fail to file returns? Moreover whenever you fail to file returns you are slapped with a fine of ksh. 2000. You can avoid this trouble by setting aside just two minutes of your time to file returns by following this procedure:

1. Take a computer, open the browser and type the word iTax portal. Select the first search result ( and you will be redirected to a page where you are supposed to key in your details. 

2. Enter the KRA pin, your password and then answer the question that follows it (security stamp). Once done click login

In case you don't remember your password or KRA pin follow the procedure in this link to retrieve them:

3. Upon successful login, you will unlock a page that looks as the one below. Click the section written Returns on the upper part of the screen then select the Nil returns.

4. In the next page fill the Type, pin and tax obligation sections as follows

  Type: Self

  Taxpayer Pin: A0122... (your KRA pin) 

  Tax Obligation: Income tax Resident

Once done click next

5. In the next page leave husband/wife section blank if unmarried. Enter your KRA pin and then enter the return period dates. 2021 returns will require return periods to be from 01/01/2020 to 31/12/2020. The dates normally appear automatically anyway. 

However if it is your first time filing returns and you got your KRA pin after 01/01/2020 e.g on 05/06/2020 then the return dates should be from 05/06/2020 to 31/12/2020. (The date when you received your KRA pin is indicated on the KRA pin certificate)

Once done click the submit button and then click on 'download return Receipt'
