In its determination to boost revenue and ensure that all taxable adults in Ogun State voluntarily perform their civic responsibilities by paying their taxes as and when due, the State Internal Revenue Service (OGIRS) has reminded taxpayers to settle their tax liabilities to the State in accordance to tax law.
The Head, Enforcement Unit of OGIRS, Mr. Tobi Adeyoola in a chat with journalists in Abeokuta, said the Service had embarked on a compliance drive exercise across the State and border towns, to enlighten the residents on the need to abide by the law.
Adeyoola explained that the exercise is a notice of demand and intention to apply to the High Court for an order to levy a distress for non-payment of tax, stating that the it was a continuous one.
“So far so good, revenue has increased and we have been able to cover Abeokuta, Sango-Ota, Ijebu, Isheri, Sagamu, Ogijo, Ifo, Ewekoro and Itori, as well as other towns neighboring Lagos and Ogun. The tax authority will ensure a fair, reliable and transparent application of tax laws towards assisting the populace to perform their civic responsibility”, he said.
