Tax enforcement was found out to be the most important component of tax compliance in Eastleigh Area in Nairobi County followed by tax administration, taxpayer attitude and_ procedural justice in that order. This implies that when one variable is improved it leads to improvement of the other.

The study further recommends that since there was a positive relationship between tax administration, procedural justice, tax payers' attitude, tax enforcement of the tax and tax compliance, the tax authority needs to consider tax incentives such as exemptions, more taxpayers education among others, if they are to realize increased levels of revenue through tax compliance.
