KRA vs David Ndii: The Kenya Revenue Authority has reopened a tax dispute with long time government critic and economist David Ndii.

According to a report that appeared in a local daily, the tax man wants part of a tax claim declared valid and Ndii ordered to pay it.

“KRA issued a notice to Ndii in December 2017 demanding a total of Sh. 11, 395,591 arising from income tax estimated Sh. 8.4 million and another Sh. 2.9 million arising from VAT, triggering a dispute at the tribunal.

The income tax dispute was settled in an out-of-court deal while the Sh. 2.9 million VAT claim was later reduced to Sh. 2.8 million,” says the report that appeared in the Business Daily on Friday. “The tribunal declared the VAT claim invalid since KRA had used the wrong procedure to notify Dr Ndii of his tax dues.” Now, the tax man wants this decision overturned.
