Makerere University, KIU and Kyambogo University feature on the list.

The list released by Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has 13 higher institutions of learning, six international schools and the National Curriculum Development Council.
While releasing the list, URA boss Doris Akol thanked the institutions for meeting their tax obligations, saying their commitment to pay taxes deserve a special nod from URA, the parents, and other members of the public.
"URA recognizes the role played by educational institutions in the economic development and social transformation of our country," she said.
"You play a role in the development of human resource which is a key role in the economic development of a country. Further to this, a number of you dutifully meet your tax obligations which provide an additional return through public welfare."
She implored "the many well-known educational institutions to faithfully meet their tax obligations and be part of this top group as a further demonstration of public accountability.
