According to THE GUARDIAN, she said that the FIRS as the top tax authority in Nigeria was saddled with the responsibility of assessing, collecting and accounting for all revenues collected on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

She emphasised: “Our focus on building and strengthening human capacity has continuously improved our revenue collection year to year.

“In 2022, we collected N10.04 trillion. This underscores the efforts and capacity of our staff members.

“Beyond our focus on developing our human capital resources, it is obvious that revenue from oil which used to be the main source of government revenue is fast depleting and this has given rise to the need to look towards the non-oil revenue sources for a more sustainable way of raising income.NYSC Portal

“We have, therefore, introduced some reforms which include: Introduction of the TaxproMax Solution which is an in-house e-service solution that allows taxpayers to register, file their returns, make payments and carry out other tax obligations seamlessly.

“The Service has also introduced Self-Service Stations in all our tax offices across the country where taxpayers can walk in and have access to internet and use the TaxproMax solution to transact business with the Service.
