KRA Log In involves a set of pre-defined steps that one should follow in order to access his iTax Portal account.

When a taxpayer applies for a new KRA PIN using Cyber.co.ke Portal‘s KRA PIN Registration services, normally the KRA PIN Certificate together with the KRA PIN Number and iTax Password arte sent to the taxpayers iTax Registered Email Address so as to allow him or her log in to their KRA iTax Web Portal account.

The same applies to KRA PINs not on iTax. Once the taxpayer orders for PIN Update through Cyber.co.ke Portal‘s KRA PIN Update services, the KRA PIN will be Updated and the KRA PIN Certificate to the with the KRA Log In credentials will be sent to the taxpayers iTax Registered Email Address so as to allow them access their iTax accounts.

So for a taxpayer to get all the functionalities that the KRA iTax Portal offers, then he or she needs to log in to their iTax Web Portal accounts.

Having looked at the basic definition of what we mean by KRA Log In in relation to the KRA iTax Portal, we now need to look at some of the most important items that a taxpayer is going to need in this process. This mainly includes the KRA PIN Number and iTax Password. Let us address what each one of these is below.

  • What Is KRA PIN Number?

KRA PIN Number is a Personal Identification Number that is issued by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to a taxpayer in Kenya upon successful KRA PIN Registration process using Cyber.co.ke Portal. So, the KRA PIN Number is that eleven digits long number that is required nearly in most places in Kenya.

The KRA PIN Number serves as the Log In ID or User ID or User name in the KRA Log In process on iTax Portal. The KRA PIN Number is normally sent together with the KRA PIN Certificate to taxpayers who have just registered for a KRA PIN using Cyber.co.ke Portal.

The same applies to taxpayers who have also migrated or updated their KRA PIN Numbers on iTax. Once the KRA PIN is updated through the KRA PIN Update services at Cyber.co.ke Portal, the KRA PIN Number will be sent together with the updated KRA PIN Certificate to the email address that the taxpayer provided during in the KRA PIN Update online order request submitted to Cyber.co.ke Portal.

  • What Is iTax Password?

This is definitely the most important item in the KRA Log In process on iTax Portal. Basically iTax Password is a set of secret characters or words used to authenticate access to the KRA iTax Portal by a taxpayer. iTax Passwords help ensure that the taxpayers iTax account can only be accessed by the taxpayer himself or herself.

The KRA iTax Password is normally sent together with the KRA PIN Certificate once a taxpayer has successfully registered for a KRA PIN using Cyber.co.ke Portal‘s KRA PIN Registration services. The taxpayer will have to immediately log in to his or iTax account and set up a new password that he or she can easily remember so as to enable easy log in to the KRA iTax Portal.

The same applies also when a taxpayer has updated his or her KRA PIN Number using Cyber.co.ke Portal‘s KRA PIN Update services. The KRA iTax password together with the updated KRA PIN Certificate are normally sent to the taxpayers email addresses, and they will to have to immediately set up a new KRA iTax Password that they will be using to access their KRA Web Portal accounts dung the KRA Log In process.
