Now there’s no hassle of going to the revenue office and waiting in a long line queue. Taxes of the Inland Revenue Office (IDR) now can be paid from the E-Sewa service.
E-sewa is a digital wallet to pay your different utility bills online.
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.
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.
What the Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of E-SEWA, Subhas Sapkota, has to say about this?
“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.
