    How to File KRA Returns using the pre-populated Income Option

    The pre-populated income option is the easiest and quickest way to file your KRA returns. It is a feature provided by KRA that pre-fills your tax returns based on the information that your employer has already submitted to the KRA.

    Step 1: Visit the KRA iTax Portal

    To access the pre-populated income option, you will need to visit the KRA iTax portal at https://itax.kra.go.ke/KRA-Portal/.

    Step 2: Log in to Your iTax Account

    If you have an iTax account, you can simply log in using your PIN. If you do not have an iTax account, you will need to create one by clicking on the “Register” button and following the prompts.

    Step 3: Access the Pre-populated Income Option

    Once you have logged in to your iTax account, click on the “Income Tax” tab, then click on the “Individual” option. On the next page, click on the “Pre-populated” option to access the pre-populated income form.

    Step 4: Review and Confirm Your Information

    The pre-populated form will display all of the information that your employer has already submitted to KRA. It is important to review this information carefully to ensure that it is accurate. If there are any errors, you can make the necessary changes by clicking on the “Edit” button.

    Step 5: Submit Your Return

    Once you have confirmed that your information is correct, click on the “Submit” button to complete the process.
