Kenyans should re­port tax eva­sion cases to the KRA

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

The ‘You are the rea­son’ ad­vert by the Kenya Rev­enue Au­thor­ity, which has been grac­ing our TV screens, is but a sneak pre­view of the role the au­thor­ity plays in the coun­try’s de­vel­op­ment agenda. The var­i­ous so­cial ameni­ties de­picted in the ad­vert ex­em­plify the tax­man’s role in en­sur­ing there is a sig­nif­i­cant de­gree of na­tional self-reliance and sus­te­nance as far as pro­vi­sion of cru­cial so­cial ser­vices is con­cerned. Just to cite a few cases, we all take pride in the fa­mous Thika Su­per High­way, whether it ben­e­fits us di­rectly or in­di­rectly. The other day, we wit­nessed the ini­tial phases of im­ple­men­ta­tion of the lap­top project for class one pupils. All this is courtesy of the rev­enue col­lected through taxes. As pa­tri­otic cit­i­zens, we should sup­port KRA’s ef­forts by re­port­ing cases of tax eva­sion through the pro­vided pro­ce­dures.
