Ethiopia to begin online tax payment system
ADDIS ABABA – The Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority (ERCA) said it will launch e-payment (payment of taxes online by taxpayers) as of next Ethiopian fiscal year.
ERCA’s Director of Education and Communications, Ephrem Mekonnen, told FBC today that the system helps to save time and money as well as to avoid overcrowding at the end of each month.
The system allows taxpayers to pay online from where they are using internet connection.
The system will be implemented extensively after it is proved successful on some taxpayers, he said.
