How To Reprint KRA PIN Certificate On KRA iTax Web Portal.
Have you ever lost or misplaced your KRA PIN certificate? If so, you are not alone. Many taxpayers in Kenya face this problem at some point in their lives.
Fortunately, there is a simple and convenient way to reprint your KRA PIN certificate online using the KRA iTax web portal.
In this article, we will show you how to do it in a few easy steps.
What is the meaning of Reprinting your KRA PIN Certificate?
Reprinting your KRA PIN Certificate means that you go into your iTax Web Portal Account and use a special feature called “Reprint PIN Certificate” to get a new copy of your KRA PIN Certificate in case you lost your original copy. After doing this, a copy is sent to the email you registered with iTax to confirm that you successfully reprinted your PIN Certificate.
What are the requirements for reprinting the KRA PIN Certificate on the KRA iTax Portal?
The process requires two key items: your KRA PIN and the KRA iTax password.
In case you don’t know or have forgotten your iTax password, you can request a password reset and a new password will be emailed to you. You can then use it to log into your iTax account.

Here, you need to pick either the Agent or Taxpayer application type. If you are doing the KRA PIN certificate download on your own, go for the “Taxpayer” option. After that, click on Submit.
