Kogi IRS set to clampdown on fake revenue collectors in Kogi

Kogi Internal Revenue Service (KGIRS) has vowed to clamp down on illegal and fake revenue collectors as part of the measures to prevent double taxation on businesses and tax payers.

The executive chairman of Kogi State Internal Revenue Service (KGIRS), Alhaji Sule Salihu Enehe, stated this Tuesday when journalists paid him a congratulatory visit for his elevation as the substantive executive chairman of KGIRS by the state governor, Alhaji  Yahaya Bello.

He said revenue and taxes will be paid and collected through cashless monetary transactions. He lamented  that thugs have taken over collection of revenue in the eastern part of the state.
He also expressed optimism of the agency in flushing out all those that have no business with revenue and tax collection.

He stated that illegal miners of solid minerals and persons in cashew farming and related businesses, who have not been paying revenue in the past, will henceforth be taxed.

He added that it has become necessary to collect  dues from businesses in the state.

“We are resolute to aggressively collect revenue in the state to meet up the target or beyond to achieve 100 per cent  budget target for the 2023 fiscal year,” the revenue boss said.
