    [​IMG] IPP media leads in exposing tax evaders

    Finance minister Mustafa Mkulo (R) presents Overall Winner award in category of large taxpayers to NMB chief executive officer Mark Wiessing.

    Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) has beaten its revenue collection record by a huge margin, hitting 604bn/= in September, this year compared to the set target of collecting 588bn/- and monthly averages of 420bn/-.
    The revelation was made during the commemoration of Tax Payers Day yesterday in Dar es Salaam which was graced by the Minister for Finance, Mustafa Mkulo.
    “This is a great achievement for the authority and a sign of how efficiently it was working day and night to make sure that the government and the people benefit from the tax collected,” said the minister.
    Mkulo said the amount reflected an improvement in the efforts of ensuring that everyone in the business sector contributed in paying tax.
    “TRA has every reason to be proud because of the great achievement so far since its establishment in the country…this shows how much they are committed in making sure that enough tax is collected for the benefit of the country in realising its development goals, ” said Mkulo, applauding TRA for the achievement.
    He called on TRA to broaden its tax collection base, noting that it is the only way to raise revenue for the growth of the nation.
    The minister said: “Since its establishment in the country, the authority has been one of the major organs that carry the national responsibility of revenue collection.”
    He urged the authority to
    come up with strategies that will help it to increase revenues.
    The minister said one such strategy was to maintain close contact with tax payers and to continue educating them on the importance of tax payment, while also promptly solving the snags they face in executing their tax payment obligations.
    He stressed that development comes through tax payment and that nothing could be achieved by the government without tax revenue.
    “People should know that government relies on taxes to carry out its responsibilities on a daily basis.”
    He further urged the authority to impose strict penalties on those who evade taxes and to strive to increase collections.
    For his part, the TRA board chairman, Bernard Mchomvu commended all those who pay taxes regularly without any avoidance, saying they helped to increase the government’s capacity to serve the people.
    “Although we do face challenges in the exercise but we have so far managed to collect huge amount of money as we seen that in the month of September 604b/= was collected which TRA has never achieved since its establishment”, explained Mchomvu.
    Mchomvu urge all the business people to pay tax so as to fasten the country’s development so as to reduce poverty and see that every person benefit from it through different ways.
    Meanwhile the IPP media was yesterday awarded by TRA for exposing people who evade taxes and educating the public on the importance of paying taxes in the country.
    The award was presented by Minister Mkulo, at the commemoration of the Tax Payer’s Day in Dar es Salaam.
    Speaking briefly after receiving the award, IPP Executive Chairman Reginald Mengi said more education was needed to make sure that everyone understood the importance of paying taxes for the benefit of the country.
    “No country can develop without revenues…so people should be aware that their money is important for the country’s economic prosperity,” stressed Mengi.
    He called on all business people to cultivate the habit of paying taxes knowing that the government needed the revenues to finance its daily activities and also provide services to the people.
