MRA happy with Everyone Must Pay Tax Campaign

The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) says Everyone Must Pay Tax Campaign  (EMPTC) which was launched in February 2017 is going on very well and proving to be a success.

MRA Head of Corporate Affairs Steven Kapoloma: Happy with campaign

MRA Director of Corporate Affairs, Steven Kapoloma, said the country’s tax collection body is witnessing a tremendous inflow of tax players coming to their offices.

Kapoloma said the majority of the tax payers are beginning to register with MRA and getting interested in taxation issues to help boost the country’s economy.

“The Everyone Must Pay Tax Campaign has brought interest in taxation. People are now interested to know how taxation affects them and also how they can assist MRA in doing its work of tax collection effectively,”said Kapoloma.

He further said the campaign is very important to tax payers themselves since there is likely to be a relief in terms of tax rates.

“If more companies are paying taxes, individual contributions towards taxpaying will be less and this will bring a relief to them,” said Kapoloma.

The Director of Corporate Affairs added that the campaign is also assisting MRA in making sure that there is a level playing field for all tax payers in Malawi which brings in fairness.

MRA launched the Everyone Must Pay Tax Campaign on Friday, February 3, 2017 with the aim of improving tax compliance among businesses and individuals.

The Campaign is meant to end in April 2017 and MRA has so far engaged businesses, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and the media directly to help educate people on tax provisions, processes and procedures so that they comply with revenue laws and support domestic tax mobilization.

The problem is that most of the money you collect goes to the pockets of fews guys in the ruling party DPP and other corrupt govt officials. Poor Malawians benefit nothing from the tax they pay. MRA stop fooling people please. Next time we will call for tax strike and boycot until corruption is stopped period.
