Executive Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service FIRS, Muhammad Nami, has urged stakeholders to work towards a robust tax administration for the benefit of all citizens.

A statement issued in Abuja by Special Assistant, Media and Communication to the Executive Chairman,  Johannes Wojuola, said he stated this at a stakeholders meeting on the Finance Bill 2021.

According to Wojuola, the FIRS boss stressed that the Finance Bill must be tailored towards enabling an efficient tax system that would work for every Nigerian.

The statement quoted Nami as saying that whatever proposals that have been submitted for consideration should be looked at critically vis-à-vis what works for Nigeria, the business community, the taxpayers, tax consultants and the Nigerian system altogether.

The statement further said that Nami appealed to the Fiscal Policy Reform Committee and the National Assembly Committees on Finance to continue to make laws that would stand the test of time and reflect economic realities.

He called for laws that would not only assist government at the level of mobilising revenue, but also assist the Micro Small and Medium Scale Enterprises MSMEs to grow and become taxpayers in the future.
