ABSTRACT

Today, tax considerations impact virtually every aspect of business operations. Tax experts constantly monitor changes in the tax laws and analyze how they affect you and your organization
This report is a summary of the study that was undertaken to develop and implement an online Tax management system. The Tax Management system developed in this project was developed using Php, java script and html as the programming languages and Mysql as the database Management system. The researcher reviewed the literature of Management information systems in chapter two and explored the advantages and limitations of Tax management systems in real life situations.
The researcher used interviews and questionnaire methods during the data collection phase, these data collection methods helped the researcher to better understand the existing system in use. Case tools and data flow diagram were used during the development process to simulate the process of Tax management. The outcome of the study was an online Tax Management system tested and implemented in the case study Kampala Capital City Authority

CHAPTER ONE

1.1 Background of the study
Today, tax considerations impact virtually every aspect of business operations. Tax experts constantly monitor changes in the tax laws and analyze how they affect you and your organization.
Computerized, integrated tax information systems represent the central data station, which fuels almost all daily operations of modern Tax Administrations anywhere in the world. However, tax administrators in many organizations still have to cope with paper-based, largely manual tax information systems or, at best, with data systems supported by very limited, outdated and inadequate computer hardware and software. (Arturo A. Jacobs, 2004).
Early efforts to modernize tax information systems of organizations through projects financed by international development agencies always present a mix of special challenges and needs which, in the opinion of the researcher, are not always well addressed in the design stage, for a variety of reasons cited below. Foremost among vital tools which are often missed are some tools which can best support tax administrators’ operational needs under particular situations which confront them. (Arturo A. Jacobs, 2004).
In almost all organizations, tax administrators are being forced to continually modernize their existing computerized information systems to meet the challenges of increased public demand for services, of flat or decreased budgets, of required increases in productivity, and of increased requirements to maximize revenue to fund government operations.
To try to meet all these demands, tax administrators have been fast embracing many technological advances used in the private sector, such as electronic commerce, interactive telephone systems, and the capture of data by the scanning or imaging of paper documents. Tax authorities have been quickly moving to redesign their basic business processes and to rapidly implement electronic receipt, processing and delivery methods. However to other organization a move in the technology to embrace tax management is a journey in the unknown direction and KCCA is one of these organizations which still relay on a manual system to manage its taxes
A tax is a compulsory financial contribution imposed by a government to raise revenue, levied on the income or property of persons or organizations, on the production costs or sales prices of goods and services,
A tax management information system is a type of information system used to help set and manage tax processing and meet the tax requirements. Many software systems now provide “wizards” which walk the user through the process as efficiently and accurately as possible. (Finance, 2012)

1.2 Case study description
Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) is the legal entity, established by the Parliament; it is responsible for the operations of the capital city of Kampala in Uganda. It replaced the former Kampala City Council (KCC). KCCA is headed by the executive director who is charged with all executive functions of managing Kampala City
Kampala Capital City Authority;The Authority is a corporate body with perpetual succession and may sue and be sued in its corporate name and do, enjoy or suffer anything that may be done, enjoyed or suffered by a body corporate.The Authority is the governing body of the Capital City and administers Capital City on behalf of the central government. KCCA today uses a manual system of tax management for taxis. This system is slow and it’s hard to quickly track those taxis which have paid taxes and those that haven’t paid, hence the research took out to design an online tax management system for taxis with focus on KCCA

1.3 Problem Statement
The existing system is manual; this system is slow, prone to errors and it’s hard to track those taxis which have paid and those which haven’t paid the taxes. This makes the whole return form taxes low.

1.4 Project Objectives

1.4.1 General Objective
To develop a tax management information system, for taxis in Kampala

1.4.2 Specific Objectives
i. To study the existing tax management system in Kampala identifying its weaknesses and strengths
ii. To design an online tax management system for taxis
iii. To implement a tax management system for KCCA
iv. To test and validate the tax management information system

1.5 Scope of the study
System scope
The developed system facilitate online checking of tax defaulters; provide a database for those taxis which have already paid their taxes and those which haven’t yet paid. The system will also calculate monthly tax collection and produce a receipt after every payment.
Time scope
The system was designed and implemented within two months. During this period the researcher collected data about the existing system, specified user and system requirement and designed and implemented the new KKCA online tax management system

1.6 Justification of the Study
If computerized, integrated tax information systems are to be accepted and viewed as successful, tax administrators and support personnel must feel that there are great benefits provided to them. The effective functionality of a computerized system for tax administration can only be accomplished if there is a careful and detailed definition of the users’ requirements for the applications tailored to each organization. If adopted and implemented the e-tax system provides the following advantages;
i. A computerized tax system will supports and simplifies the overall function of tax administration,
ii. The system will provide faster access to information for its main users
iii. The system will identify taxpayers, who are not in compliance with tax regulation
iv. It will produce reports in a manner more timely than the manual systems
With all these advantages then the design and implementation of an online taxa management system is ultimately non-questionable.
