Step 1: Access the iTax System
First of all, you will need to visit the iTax Online eService website on this link – https://itax.kra.go.ke/KRA-Portal. If that link doesn’t work, you can try this one – https://itax.kra.go.ke/. However you can search on Google the word “itax kra” and you should be able to get the website link from the results.
Step 2: New PIN Registration
If you are unregistered user and would like to register your PIN, then on the right column you will be able to see a link named “New PIN Registration” under the Unregistered Users. Click on that link to proceed.
Step 3: e-Registration
Once you have reached this point, you will need to select the Taxpayer Type you fit in on the drop down field. The options available are;
Individual – personal, students, employee, entrepreneurs
Non Individual – for businesses and companies
You will also be expected to select the Mode of Registration whether it is “Online Form” or “Upload Form”.
Step 4: Basic Information
You will now be required to fill in your information on this form with accurate details. Once you complete inputting your details, you will need to click “Next” in order to proceed to the next section.
Step 5: Tax Obligation Details
KRA has added some new improvement on the way you will need to meet the tax obligation requirements. In the previous ITMS, you were only expected to tick a check box. However on the new iTax system, you are expected to put the registration date next to your tax obligation that you have selected.
Step 6: Source of Income
iTax system has brought in a new requirement that will expect all taxpayers to mention their source of income.
- Employment Income
- Business Income
- Rental Income
Step 7: Agent Details
KRA has introduced a new regulation on the PIN registration which will require that you have an authorized Tax Agent to submit your application on your behalf. This means that you simply can’t finish the PIN registration process by yourself.
Once every field has been filled with correct information you will be able to submit the information. However in the event you had forgotten to fill a field, an Error Tab will appear and inform you the sections where you have not completed before you can proceed.
Step 8: Download & Print
When you successfully submit your information, you will be able to see a message saying “Registration Application has been Submitted Successfully.” Your new PIN will be displayed on the screen and you will also be to see a link labeled “Click here to download PIN certificate” that will allow you to download your new PIN and print. That’s it.
