The Kenya Revenue Authority has said that every Kenya who has been enrolled in the Huduma Namba system will automatically be listed as a taxpayer when he/she turns 18 years of age. This is in line with the newly proposed bill. The tax paying obligations will be activated for every Kenyan immediately they turn 18 as said by the Kenya Revenue Authority Commissioner General.
"Every resident individual who has enrolled into the National Integrated Identity Management System shall by default be a registered taxpayer upon attaining the age of eighteen years," the proposed bill stated in part. "The Huduma Namba assigned to an individual under Huduma Act, 2021 shall serve as PIN for purposes of tax law," the bill read further.
As of present, a Kenyan citizen becomes obligated to pay tax only after they register for a KRA PIN. This will be a challenge to those who have not registered for the card and are over 18 because they will have obligations to meet whether employed or not. Follow the page for more news updates daily.
