Egypt Braces for New Tax Collection Season early January

Egypt’s Tax Authority (ETA) has ordered the heads of tax districts to form technical committees dedicated to receive tax representations and facilitate collection procedures.

This comes with the framework of ETA’S preparations for new tax collection season from individuals starting from January to late March 2015.

“I hope the new season will witness more responses from funders to pay their tax dues not to wait until the end of deadline so as to enlarge sources of state’s treasury” ETA’s chairman Moustafa Abdel Kader said. In addition, he gave his orders to all sectors and tax district offices to ease procedures for funders.

He also recommended putting attractive posters about the general instructions on the tax representations.

Moreover, the Egyptian official added that tax representation samples, which mark the ninth generation, would be printed and circulated throughout tax district offices by the beginning of January 2015.
