Simplifying the payment of taxes will still be one of the main guiding principles of the Inland Revenue Service (DGI in French) this year, we learned at the end of the last coordination meeting of the central, external and decentralised services of the Cameroonian tax administration, organised in Maroua, in the Extreme-North region.
Indeed, to maximise the collection of revenue in 2017, DGI announced, among other innovations, “the installation of electronic terminals for the payment of income tax and other taxes in tax administration services, as well as the implementation of a cash payment system at bank counters; the extension of tax payment by mobile telephone and implementation of a declaration system through mobile telephone for small taxpayers”.
According to the tax administration management, meeting the State’s collection targets assigned to DGI in 2017 goes through this type of initiative. As a reminder, FCfa 1,843 billion are expected from DGI this year, against FCfa 1,715 billion in 2016
