URA Ramps Up Crackdown On Tax Defaulters

The Uganda Revenue Authority has resounded its call to tax defaulters in Kampala Metropolitan Region. The revenue collection body is calling out to tax defaulters to clear any outstanding taxes immediately to avoid inconveniences.


They made this call in a reposted public announcement on Tuesday (February 22).

URA informed the general public pointing out Section 21 and 23 of the Tax Procedure Act. The body will visit business premises to issue assessments to all non-compliant taxpayers in Kampala Central Business District.

Later, they will extend this exercise to the rest of the country. The exercise got underway on January 20 and will go on throughout the year.

“You are advised to clear any outstanding taxes immediately to avoid inconvenience associated with recovery of unpaid taxes,” says URA.

The operation against tax defaulters came after URA Commissioner General, John Musinguzi Rujoki’s observations earlier this week. He said earlier this month that they had registered a sh901b deficit in their revenue target between July and December 2021.


Musinguzi said that despite the deficits, tax collectors are collecting more revenue compared to the previous revenue collection calendar.
