How To Download KRA Amnesty Certificate On iTax

The ongoing KRA Amnesty allows all taxpayers in Kenya apply for Amnesty of Fines, Penalties and Interest incurred. If you only have penalties and interest up to the period ending 31st December 2022, you will be entitled to automatic waiver of the penalties and interest related to that period and will not be required to make an amnesty application on iTax. If you have not paid all the principal taxes accrued up to 31st December 2022, you will be required to apply for the KRA Amnesty and propose a payment plan for any outstanding principal taxes which should be paid not later than 30th June 2024.

You can check out the following two blog posts to get an understanding of the KRA Amnesty Program; The Complete Beginner’s Guide To KRA Tax Amnesty 2023 and How To Apply For KRA Tax Amnesty (In 5 Steps). Once the Amnesty has been applied for, Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) will issue you with a KRA Amnesty Certificate that confirms that you have granted Amnesty of Fines, Penalties and Interest as provided under section 37E of the Tax Procedures Act 2015. The KRA Amnesty Certificate Details includes; Tax Obligation, Tax Period, Interest Amount, Penalty Amount, Fine Amount and the Total Amount.

Once you are issued with KRA Amnesty Certificate, you are encouraged to remain compliant for no waivers and write-offs will be granted by KRA for any new debt. So, if you had only Penalties and Interest, the Amnesty Certificate will be issued immediately once the system clears those penalties and interest for you. On the other hand, those with principal amount will have to apply for KRA Amnesty and make a payment plan to clear the principal amount on or before 30th June 2024, afterwards the penalties and interest will also removed and KRA Amnesty Certificate will be issued to them.
