Airtel Uganda and URA partner to ease tax payment

14 June 2019

Airtel Uganda has joined forces with the country’s tax collection body to ensure people find it easy and convenient to pay their bills.

The two bodies have launched an Airtel Money payment mode, dubbed Airtel Easy Tax, which will facilitate the payment of all taxes while offering the telecom’s subscribers convenience, reliability and efficiency.

In just a few steps, users will be able to register a payment and pay their taxes from the convenience of their home, office, or even while on the go. The tax collection body said that the initiative will be key in achieving two specific objectives.

The first one is to improve “voluntary compliance” through the delivery of an improved and convenient service with efficiency at a reduced cost to taxpayers especially in the Small and Medium sector. Secondly, it will effectively account for government revenue, while minimising reconciliation challenges associated with payments especially those conducted online.

To access the Airtel Easy Tax service, users must dial *185*4# and then select URA, before following the prompts to make tax payments and clearances.
