A web-based television channel will debut on Monday, October 3, according to the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).
By airing condensed duty and customs content, KRA TV hopes to improve tax literacy and compliance in the nation.
The debut of the TV station will take place during KRA’s annual Taxpayer’s Month, which honors law-abiding taxpayers around the nation, the Taxman says.
The culminating ceremony for the yearly event, which was first held in 2021, will honor notable taxpayers.
“The “KRA TV” platform will be hosted on KRA website and drive a demand-based viewership. The station will host customized tax content that the public may consume at their convenience,” said KRA Communication Deputy Commissioner Grace Wandera in a statement on Friday.
“The key features on the TV will include Scheduled live programming of tax awareness activities like Tax Talks, Tax Thursdays, Stori za Ushuru and other education programs. It will also air a wide range of simplified and downloadable content for various taxpayer categories among the many other programs.”
KRA will also take part in a variety of activities throughout the month to recognize and appreciate taxpayers.
Taxpayer appreciation events, taxpayer education initiatives, tax summit events, and Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiatives are just a few of the activities.
“KRA encourage the public to participate in the Taxpayers’ Month activities as an act of patriotism. Through their participation, taxpayers will have an opportunity to give feedback on various tax issues that will enable the Authority to enhance service delivery and create a more conducive environment for compliance,” said Wandera.
