Summary
If you make 500,000 KSh a year living in Kenya, you will be taxed 90,961 KSh. That means that your net pay will be 409,039 KSh per year, or 34,087 KSh per month. Your average tax rate is 18.2% and your marginal tax rate is 30.7%. This marginal tax rate means that your immediate additional income will be taxed at this rate.
