FIRS Urges Tax Payers To Utilise New Tax Payment Platform

The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has called on taxpayers to utilize its new Tax Administration Solution platform (TaxPro-Max) to promptly pay their taxes

Mr. Hassan Sule, the FIRS Coordinator in the states of Kano, Jigawa, and Katsina, gave the advice shortly after a road walk to mark the agency’s Tax Payers Week on Monday in Kano.

The Coordinator stressed that the new tax payment platform was designed to ease tax compliance and modernize tax administration in the country.

Sule said that the exercise was organized to sensitize tax payers on the fact that FIRS was capable, willing and able to discharge its responsibilities effectively and efficiently.

He said that the FIRS officials also talked to tax payers on other tax issues including compliance and registration during the road walk tax sensitisation exercise.

The Coordinator explained that taxes were collected to provide social amenities including roads and hospitals that would enhance lives, as well as sustain the nation. (NAN)
