FIRS Generates N6.4 Trillion From Taxes In 2021 – Nami

The Federal Internal Revenue Service collected around N6.4 trillion in taxes in 2021.

The FIRS Chief Executive, Muhammad Nami, gave the figure in Abuja on Wednesday in a public presentation and breakdown of the highlights of the 2022 Appropriation Act.

“We collected more than 70 percent of the target set for 2021 with the help of technology and I assure Nigeria that we will do better in 2022.

“The figures will be released in full soon,” Nami said.

He added that the technology helped access taxpayer records and local and international exchange.

In his remarks, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Senator Olamilekan Adeola, noted that there were challenges in raising revenue, but that harder work would improve the situation.

“We are rewriting history trying to return the government’s budget calendar to January-December and every December we make sure that the president approves the budget for the following year and we have succeeded for three years.

“This is a commendable achievement under this administration,” Adeola said.
