FIRS introduces e-Solutions and e-Payments. In a bid to ensure comfortability and convenience in the processing and payment of taxes, the Federal Inland Revenue (FIRS) has upgraded its web platform with the introduction of 6 new e-Solutions that Nigerians can use to effect and transact tax issues from any location, whether in their offices or homes.
The 6 introduced E-solutions include:
. Payment of stamp duties (via e-stamp duty)
. Payment of taxes ( via e-Taxpay and Remita)
. Taxpayer registration (via e-Registration)
. Collection of e-Receipt after payment of taxes (via e-Receipt)
. Receiving tax clearance certificates (e-TCC) through the electronic tax clearance certificate platform online (e-TCC solution)
. Filing tax returns via e-filing
In his speech, the Chairman of FIRS, Babatunde Fowler stated that the goal of making transactions related to tax online is to provide ease of convenience and make tax payments less cumbersome. He further said that tax payers will find it easy and be encouraged to make payments beased on the speed, ease and transparency associated with making payments online.
Gone are the days where tax payers will have to wait at the respective tax offices for prompt processing of tax clearance certificate and filing. Here is the opportunity to make tax payments from the comfort of one’s home or office.
This is an interesting initiative from the FIRS which we appreciate a lot. However, we hope that relevant structures have been put in place to sort out various downtime and IT issues that may be associated with new solutions!
We will soon roll out the various steps for processing of online tax payments and solutions. Please keep a date with us on the Taxprof as we share all further details in this regard.
