Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has issued a directive that all tax payments made through mobile money platforms must now be exclusively processed via the government PayBill number 222222.
This move aligns with the stipulations outlined in the Kenya Gazette No. 16008 of 2022 and follows a Presidential Directive designating PayBill number 222222 as the sole payment platform for government transactions.
Taxpayers are urged to utilize the Payment Registration Number (PRN) or the Reference Number on payment slips generated from KRA Business Systems, including iTax, EGMS, and KESRA iStudent, when making tax payments through mobile money channels.
The KRA provided clear guidelines for taxpayers to successfully complete their mobile tax payments, emphasizing the significance of adhering to this new procedure.
