Step-by-Step Process of Filing KRA Nil Returns

KRA Nil Returns is a type of Tax Return that is normally filed by individuals/taxpayers who don’t have any active source of income in Kenya. By source of income, we basically mean that they have no Business, Rental or Employment income. Thus the law requires that this type of taxpayers group file what is commonly known as KRA Nil Returns or simply Nil Returns using iTax (KRA Portal). Failure to file KRA Nil Returns leads to an automatic penalty of Kshs. 2,000 per year not filed. This means that if you fail to file your KRA Nil Returns by 30th of June of each year, a penalty will be imposed which you then have to pay, something that you can easily avoid by just filing your KRA Nil Returns early.
