4 Loan interest 85,000 Electricity 60, ,000 Net taxable rent income (Kshs.) 2,635,000 Notes: * School fees is a personal expenditure that is not allowable deduction. ** Principal Loan repayment is a capital item and not an allowable deduction f) Computation of Mr. Landlord s tax for the year (on the assumption that he does not have any other incomes): Taxable annual net rent income for the year - Kshs. 2,635,000 The first Kshs. 10% 12,197 The next Kshs. 15% 17,237 The next Kshs. 20% 22,982 The next Kshs. 25% 28,728 The balance Kshs. 30% 650,488 Total tax Payable 731,632 Less: Personal relief 13,944 Net tax payable 717,688 g) If Mr.Landlord had paid 4 equal instalments of Kshs. 150,000 each for the year totalling Kshs 600,000 then he would have a balance of Kshs. 117,688 to pay by 30th April However, if he had not paid any instalments in advance, then the entire of the Kshs. 717,688 would be payable by 30th April 2011 plus penalties and interest for failure to pay instalments when they are due as per the law.
