The history of taxation in Nepal dates back to antiquity. Nevertheless, the modern tax system gained its momentum with the establishment of democracy and implementation of the first consolidated budget took place in 1951. Until the late 1950s, the two major sources of revenues were land tax and tariff on foreign trade.
Income Tax was firstly adopted through the Finance Act 1959 and implemented under the business Profits and Salaries Tax Ordinance 1959. Later on, the ordinance was replaced by the Business Profits and Salaries Act 1960. After about three years of experiences, the government replaced the prevailing tax Act by Income Tax Act 1962. Bywhich sales, property taxes as well as several other minor taxes were introduced.
The income tax Act 1962 was substituted by the Income Tax Act 1974 which incorporated the different sources of income chargeable to Agricultural means, income of Remuneration, income from Industry, Trade, profession or Occupation and Rental Income from Land and Building.
To enhance revenue mobilization by making the process of collecting revenue effective for the economic development of the country and to amend and consolidate the laws relating to income, the Parliament of Nepal enacted income Tax Act 2002, which substantially reform the income tax system. The government of Nepal framed income Tax rules 2059 to clarifying the provision of act.
Tax Administration was established in 1959 in order to administer Income Tax and other minor taxes. This administration was also responsible for administering Sales Tax until 1992 when a separate Sales Tax Department was created to govern Sales Tax. In 1993, Excise Department and Sales Tax Department were merged to form the Sales Tax and Excise Department. This Department was replaced by the Value Added Tax (VAT) Department in 1996. This was the milestone of tax reform in Nepal. VAT Administration and Tax Administration were merged in 2001 to form a newly functioned organized Administration by the name of Inland Revenue Department.
