Landlords from the Mt. Kenya region have up to December to declare their rental income with Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) or face tough penalties.

Central Kenya region KRA Chief Manager Mr. Wilfred Okemwa has said landlords who voluntarily provide the information before the deadline will not be fined.
He urged landlords to comply with the law and take advantage of the amnesty given.  Mr. Okemwa spoke at East Africa Paper Mills in Thika, Kiambu County, at a function to recognize the company for being one of the best taxpayers in the region.
“We are determined to create a favourable environment for taxpayers.  Therefore Kenyans and all investors should be loyal to the country and pay their taxes without being pushed to do so for the sake of economic development in our country”, he said.
KRA has been awarding outstanding taxpayers this month.  Mr. Okemwa urged investors and Kenyans to change their attitude towards the taxman, saying the authority is committed to having a cordial relationship with taxpayers.
The iTax has made filing returns efficient and effective and it will soon bring an end to long and tiresome queues at the KRA offices, he said.  East African Paper Mills finance manager Sanjay Amin thanked KRA for recognizing the firm.
