Telebirr Oromia Tax

Ethio Telecom and the Oromia Regional State’s Revenues Bureau have signed an agreement to implement a digital tax payment system through the Telebirr platform. This new system will replace the manual tax collection system, which has been causing unnecessary time and resource wastage for taxpayers.

The Telebirr digital tax payment platform will significantly improve access to services and promote transparency, good governance, and ease of doing business. The new system will minimize operational costs and time, avoid deposit slip forgery, and improve the taxpayer experience. The Head of Oromia Regional State’s Revenues Bureau, Meskerem Debebe, emphasized that this new platform is fundamental in solving customers' grievances and promoting sustainable socio-economic development.

Ethio Telecom's customers will be able to pay their taxes easily from home using the telebirr app or by dialing *127#. They will receive their payment receipt on time.
