Rwanda Revenue Authority RRA has ascertained that many Rwandans are evading paying tax. The chief culprits are dealers in agricultural and building materials.
This practice limits revenue collection in the country and also cripples the economy. One thing that Rwandans must understand is that Rwanda heavily depends on taxpayers’ money.
This is because Rwanda is a landlocked country and can not easily access commodities across the boarders. People might perceive this as a big burden, but it is important in nation building.
The government will release money to boost the enforcement unit to ensure that no one evades taxes. The authorities will also assist taxpayers to understanding and meet their tax obligations.
RRA plans to widen the tax-base. Medium taxpayers can be assisted to develop and elevate to another level and the ministry of Local Government is assisting in the process.
RRA was established as part of the reform programme by the Government designed to restore and strengthen the main economic institutions of the country.
Let us therefore help the RAA to perform its duty of developing the country.
