About this resource:

The Kenyan Revenue Authority can receive complaints either in person, in writing or by telephone to start investigations into tax fraud in Kenya. The authority also provides a reward scheme for successful complaints, providing people with an incentive to make genuine complaints.

Tax fraud is related to corruption because higher tax rates can induce more corruption by incentivizing tax evasion, individuals have stronger incentives to accept and pay more bribes from the private sector instead of paying taxes, which has a negative impact on tax revenue.
