KIGALI - Kigali City plans to educate tax payers and address challenges faced by sector administrators during tax collection at the Sector levels.
This was announced by the Director General of the City, Aimable Gasana Ndakengerwa, while meeting Gasabo district tax payers, over the weekend.
“We want to make the two parties realize their rightful responsibilities so as to make the tax collection exercise simpler,” Ndakengerwa said.
The meeting was organized with the aim of giving a wake-up call to tax payers to honour their tax obligations before the December 31, deadline.
During the meeting, tax payers were given time to address their problems, some of which were solved on-the-spot.
Ezide Gakuba, one of the tax payers said, “The main challenge rotates around issues of land registration and paying for its tax.”
He appealed to tax administrators to always be cooperative with the tax payers.
The vice Mayor in charge of finance and economic development in Kigali City, Alphonse Nizeyimana, called upon tax payers to always expose and report cases where they receive poor services.
“It is your right to be served in the best way possible, any poor service rendered should be noted and reported immediately,” Nizeyimana said.
The meeting was also attended by the Gasabo vice Mayor in charge of finance and economic development, Yvonne Mucyo, Executive Secretaries at sector level and tax administrators at both sector and district levels.
