Okauru challenges stakeholders on tax laws

by Business News Report

The Executive Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue
Service (FIRS), Mrs Ifueko Okauru has urged stakeholders to come up with proposals that would help address areas of ambiguities in tax laws. In a statement signed by Mr Emmanuel Obeta the Director, FIRS Corporate Communications Department (CCD), Okauru said that there was the need for the laws to be simplified for easy understanding. She gave the assurance that the service was ready to partner with the relevant
stakeholders to resolve such ambiguities so as to deepen tax administration in
the country. She stated: “We don’t have answers to everything. Raise your concern so that we can together resolve them. Know that some of these ambiguities had to do with the issue of laws and to change them cannot be by my own regulations. We have to go through process of legislation and amendment to our extant laws.
“Beyond what we are doing in the FIRS, individuals and stakeholders must be willing to bring proposals in order to address areas that need changes.’’ According to her, every programme presently initiated by agencies of the Federal Government is aimed at furthering President Goodluck Jonathan’s transformation agenda.
