Uasin Gishu governor Jonathan Bii flagged off the multi-departmental revenue enhancement team as the County works towards raising their own source revenue.
“My clarion call is to all of us to be compliant in the payment of various taxes, fees, and charges payable, among other rates applicable, before the March 31st deadline so that we effectively render services,” said the County boss.
He said Payment of taxes is crucial as it is also a determinant for our national equitable share.
“Our services, which comprise business permits, land rates, signboard, and advertising, weight and measure betting control, food quality inspection, and health services, among others, will be based at the ward and sub-county levels as well as at the headquarters,” governor Bii added.
He said it’s important to note that we have gone cashless, and I urge citizens to use the pay bill number 646464.
The deputy governor Eng. John Barorot said the launch sets the stage for the County staff to engage with esteemed clients to collect various taxes, fees, and charges due and rates that are applicable by the deadline of March 31.
“We are asking our residents to heed the call before the deadline because it won’t be an enforcement exercise but rather a compliance process,” he said.
