The use of the correct Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) for employees

The Tanzania Revenue Authority would like to remind all employers about the importance of using the correct TIN for all employees in the submission of PAYE returns. TRA has discovered the presence of employers who have failed to submit the correct returns because their employees do not have a TIN. It should be noted that the submission of incorrect returns is a legal offense that leads to interest and penalties. Following that, TRA reminds all employers and employees to ensure that they consider the correct use of TIN in the submission of the PAYE return to avoid unnecessary disruption in their daily activities including increasing operating costs.
