All africa

TANZANIA Revenue Authority (TRA) has said that it will set a specific desk to attend tax issues to legal practitioners in the country as a way of simplifying voluntary tax compliance. This was said yesterday in Dar es Salaam by TRA's Domestic Revenue Commissioner, Mr Abdul Mapembe during a consultative meeting between his office and practicing legal advocates "Lawyers are practicing a noble profession, from now on, they should not be parading for tax consultations in TRA offices, as of now they should be receiving special attention as TRA is preparing a special desk for lawyers in the country," said Mapembe as he replied complaints on unnecessary tediousness the lawyers face at TRA offices. Commissioner Mapembe said that TRA which has a primary task of collecting government's revenue and educating taxpayers conducts discussion meetings with various stakeholders to discuss tax related challenges they face in daily dealings.
