Taxation in Kenya
All That You Need To Know About Taxation in Kenya
In the words of Calvin Coolidgu “collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery” But nonetheless, as responsible citizens, we pay taxes, perhaps sometimes more than we consider necessary. In that light, the statutory taxes in Kenya can be focused upon.
Any tax or duty payable to the Kenya Revenue Authority (except VAT and duty on imports) may be offset on request against any refund of tax or duty confirmed by the Authority. The request must be made 30 days prior to the tax due date. Tax paid in another country on employment income by a Kenyan citizen can be offset against tax payable on that income in Kenya to the maximum of tax payable in Kenya on the said income.
