The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) agency has today provided a platform in which Kenyans can receive payments of up to Ksh. 2 million.
Speaking during a live television interview, the KRA Commissioner General James Githii Mburu pointed out that the agency will pay those who report any tax evasion and irregularities 5% of the tax.
He further insisted that they are working to increase the maximum pay which stand at Ksh. 2 million.
“We are launching iWhistle, which is a platform where Kenyans can now give us information anonymously, you can report tax evasion, any corrupt activities, bribery demand or abuse of office by KRA officials. This platform is the game change where we receive and process your information and then we are be able to pursue the taxes.
They will be benefit if one does not want to remain anonymous and want us to reward him, we have a frame work where those who provide information from which we recover taxes will be paid 5% of that tax up to Ksh. 2 million. We are trying to seek amendment from the law so that maximum can improve from 2 to 5 Million,” posed Mburu.
According to the KRA boss it is very important for Kenyans to participate in the development of their country not only in paying taxes but also in exposing tax evaders.
