Previously, I shared a step by step guide on how to file your Kra tax returns online, but if you encountered any difficulty in filling the Microsoft Office Excel form, I have a straight forward guide for you here. To file your returns, make sure your system meets any the following requirements;
- Windows XP SP3 or later, with Microsoft Office 2007 pRO sp3 or later
- Windows 7 all editions with Microsoft Office 2010 or later.
After successfully downloading the the zipped file from the KRA iTax Portal, open the zip and extract the Excel form.
After extracting your document, click on enable editing at the top panels.
Click on ‘Enable content’. Content here means macros. Enabling this option lets you fill the form, and only available in Microsoft Office 2010 and above.
Next, fill all the required fields as they appear in your P9 form, starting from your Pin to the end.
This is how it looks like.
After filling all the require fields successfully, Click on ‘VALIDATE’ at the end of the document, and wait for about 2 minutes.
A popup will show up, asking if you would like to generate an upload file. Click yes and you will find your zip document in your documents folder, ready to be uploaded. You can refer to this post on more accurate information about uploading your returns. Remember, the process above should not take more than 10 minutes if you have everything ready.
Good Luck as you accomplish your responsibility as a patriotic Kenyan.
