How to file KRA nil returns

All Kenyans with a KRA pin are supposed to file returns between 01/01/20XX and 30/06/20XX. Failure to do so attracts a penalty of 2,000/=.

NB: in 2023 we are filing tax for 2022 income.

Those who did not have any income are supposed to file nil returns (what people call zero returns). This is the procedure of filing nil returns 20XX.
