How to file returns for housing levy


The newly introduced housing levy on the Kenyan tax payer is effective courtesy of the court of appeal lifting suspension of the Finance act 2023.

In addition to deducting and remitting 3% (1.5% employee + 1.5% employer) of gross salary to Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), it is important that you correctly file these deductions for complete compliance.
