Top 10 Inland Revenue Office with Highest Tax Collection in Nepal

Taxation has been practised in Nepal since antiquity. Nonetheless, the current tax system gained speed with the creation of democracy, and the first unified budget was implemented in 1951. Until the late 1950s, the two main sources of revenue were land tax and international trade tariffs. The Inland Revenue Department has played a major role in mobilizing tax money through internal revenue sources. This department accounts for around half of the total money received by the Nepalese government. A total of 84 operational level offices (1 Large taxpayer's office, 1 Medium taxpayer's office, 43 Inland Revenue offices, and 39 Taxpayer service offices) and an organization structure of around 1700 people have been approved under this department. In this article, we have mentioned the Top 10 Inland Revenue offices with the highest tax collection in the year 2077/78.
