Kenyans should report tax evasion cases to the KRA
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.
