Quotation Olowska, Marta, Owens, Jeffrey. 2021. New Technologies Mean New Opportunities for African Tax Administrations. Tax Notes International. 101 621-628.




In this article, the authors consider how African tax administrations can use technology to improve tax collection processes, promote compliance, and increase revenues, using Kenya and Uganda as case studies to support recommendations for the region. This article synthesizes the ideas in the first talk in a series entitled “Talking Tax: An African Perspective,” which took place July 6, 2020. In the discussion, Owens was joined by Elizabeth Meyo, the deputy commissioner of domestic taxes with the Kenya Revenue Authority, and James Odong, the assistant commissioner of process management with the Uganda Revenue Authority. The views expressed in this article are solely those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of their employers or organizations.
