The Ministry of Revenues (MoR) and National ID Program reached a deal to link tax identification numbers with national IDs. During the signing ceremony, Aynalem Nigussie, Minister of Ministry of Revenue, stated that the agreement would enable her office to save the foreign exchange that it used to purchase systems for the issuance of tax identification numbers. According to the Minister, the agreement would also help in facilitating the tax identification issuance process at the Ministry.
Yodahe Zemichael, Director of National ID Program, on his part, said that National ID would support the Ministry collect taxes efficiently.
The National ID Program has plans to issue Digital IDs to over 70 million citizens and residents in Ethiopia by the end of 2025.
