Lagos announces review of tax policy





The Lagos State Internal Revenue Service, LIRS, has announced a review of its tax policy.

The review will identify contentious areas with a view to improving the ease of doing business in the city.

It explained that the development would simplify the complexities and also bridge the gap between the tax laws and everyday practice.

LIRS in statement said the objective of the exercise was to ensure “adherence to existing provisions by creating ease in different dealings including relief on voluntary pension contributions, allowable interest deductions on owner-occupied residential houses, exemption of compensation for loss of employment, and Pay As You Earn on employee outsourcing arrangements among others.

“It is believed that these reviews will address the myriad of tax disputes that arise between the LIRS and taxpayers or their representatives, whilst strengthening its position as an efficient revenue earner that provides high quality and transparent customer oriented services.

“Taxpayers in Lagos are hereby enjoined to take full advantage of this exercise by looking out for publications in national dailies, explaining details of the reviews in the coming days.”
