The Kenya Revenue Authority on Monday, June 24, announced that the entity would be rolling out a taxpayer register data clean-up exercise. 

This exercise is being undertaken to ensure the integrity of the taxpayer’s register. 

Speaking of the move, KRA noted that once complete, it would enhance service delivery to all taxpayers. 

“Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), would like to notify all registered taxpayers of the ongoing data clean-up exercise of taxpayers' Personal Identification Number (PIN) registration details,” a statement from the Authority read in part.

During the exercise, Kenyans will be tasked with providing their registration details on iTax. 

Details required during the registration exercise include a valid and correct phone number, the physical address of the taxpayer and the registered email address. 

Other details include the physical location of the business if any, residency status, and directorships or partnerships. 

“Upon logging into iTax, the system will display the mobile number registered in iTax through which an OTP will be sent for validation of contact details,” Kenyans were briefed on the registration exercise. 

“Where the number is incorrect, taxpayers will be required to capture the correct mobile number through which an OTP will be sent to enable access to the iTax system.”

All registered taxpayers were asked to adhere to the exercise and update their details accordingly with the Authority. 

Kenyans having trouble doing the self-registration are advised to visit any Huduma Centre across the country or a Tax Office Service. 

Additionally, taxpayers can contact KRA through their email address or call 020 4 999 999, 0711 099 999
