FIRS Partners NTA, FRCN, NOA To Enlighten Consumers On Tax Compliance
The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) and the National Orientation Agency (NOA) to create massive awareness on tax issues nationwide.
The MOU will see the National Orientation Agency, national broadcast media platforms and the tax collection agency collaborate to engage in a nationwide tax education campaign.
The Revenue agency said it plans to increase awareness of the importance of tax payment by carrying out a nationwide campaign to educate and provide step by step instructions on taxes.
A recent message on the tweeter platform of FIRS said “Today, the FIRS signed an MOU with the Nigeria Television Authority, the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, & the National Orientation Agency, to commence a nationwide taxpayer education campaign that will focus on taxes to pay, how to pay, where to pay, when to pay & why we pay,”
Recently, FIRS said it achieved over 100 percent of its collection target in 2021, and it is working towards achieving more.
Last week, the agency had said it would start collecting taxes on income derived by companies from bonds and short-term securities.
Just last week, the executive chairman of the FIRS, Mohammed Nami, had urged Nigerians to obey the law by ensuring prompt payment of taxes.
