Rwanda: RRA to Have Same Taxpayers Database With PSF

The deputy commissioner general of Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA), Pascal Ruganintwali, has said RRA is committed to have a database of all taxpayers.

He was reacting to a request by Stephen Safari, the chairman of the Private Sector in Kayonza, during last week’s RRA’s taxpayers’ appreciation day in the district.

"We will have the database of taxpayers but this should start from grassroots because you know everyone who has a business," Ruganintwali responded to Safari.

According to RRA commissioner general, Richard Tusabe, some taxpayers are in their database but not that of PSF and tracking them becomes a problem.

"We want all taxpayers in the PSF register such that we can have the same database," Tusabe said recently after signing a memorandum of understanding with the Private Sector Federation (PSF) to harmonize service delivery.
