The Teachers Service Commission has authorised its employees to file Their individual income tax returns for the year 2020 as the deadline is nearing. This was indicated on the circular dated 15th April 2021 that was addressed to the secretariat staff, Principal’s of secondary schools, headteachers of primary schools and teacher training colleges.
The circular indicated that the TSC has uploaded all the P9 forms to the tsc payslip portal where the teachers can download and use to file Their returns.
All the instructors and the secretariat have until 30th June to file Their Returns to avoid being penalized by KRA. The penalty is Ksh. 20,000 for those who fail to file Their returns.
TSC also indicated that it’s working with the KRA to harmonize the itax records for the years 2015- 2020. This will facilitate the issuance of the Tax Compliance certificate and clearance certificates for teachers.
