TRA explains that these achievements can be attributed to various factors, including directives and guidance from President Dr. Samia Suluhu Hassan and other government leaders. Additionally, increased investment and economic growth, particularly in industries and tourism, played a pivotal role.

Furthermore, the adoption of ICT systems in tax management streamlined services and encouraged voluntary tax compliance. The public’s growing awareness and motivation regarding tax matters, driven by campaigns like “Door-to-Door” and “Let’s be Responsible,” have also contributed significantly.
