Taxes of the Inland Revenue Office can be paid from the E-Sewa service, freed from the hassle of queuing
Taxpayers can file (pay) from the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) Revenue Service. From now on, taxpayers can pay VAT, property tax, business tax, and other service charges of any revenue office under the Inland Revenue Department through E-Sewa.
With the availability of this service in E-Sewa, the hassle of going to the revenue office and waiting in a long line has been eliminated.
Taxpayers with an e-sewa account can easily pay tax from home while those without an e-sewa account can pay tax from the nearby e-sewa zone and Isewa point.
Chief Executive Officer of E-SEWA, Subhas Sapkota, said,
“The government aims to make all public sector payments cashless(digital payments) in its policies and programs.”
In this regard, we have launched a cashless campaign by linking the payments of all government offices through digital payments. We have reached the point where we can pay taxes from any corner of the country through our nationwide agent network.
Although the service is currently only available on the web version of the service, the company says it will add a facility to pay directly from mobile in the near future.
