Uganda Revenue Authority has launched a debit credit payment card today at the URA headquarters in Nakawa to ease the tax payment process.

The launch has been kicked off with the URA commissioner of domestic taxes speech, Henry Saka who has said that this card is going to ease the tax payment because it’s quick, simple and easy.

“This card is going to reduce fraud and it will increase convenience.” Saka said.

He added that this new payment method offers the tax payer the ability to use any visa or master card irrespective of issuing bank to pay the taxes, to pay court bail fees and visa fees.

“This card has the ability to register a payment on URA’S portal and complete it on the bank’s portal.” Saka added.

Doris Akol the Executive Director of URA said that this is an addition to the existing payment methods like cash, cheques, payway, MTN mobile money and many others.
