New online service for tax payers launched

15 July 2015, 09:48Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has in collaboration with the Nigerian Interbank Settlement System (NIBSS) introduced an online self-service tax payment system.

The e-Taxpay will enable taxpayers pay through their banks’ online payment portals.

According to the revenue agency, the system is an initiative meant to facilitate payments of taxes from the comfort of taxpayers’ offices or homes.

“Taxpayers can pay using the electronic channels provided by their bankers such as banks’ internet banking platform, branches and mobile banking platforms,” FIRS said.

The bank added that taxpayer would first register and obtain their Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) and have an account with any bank of their choice.

They would then subscribe to the internet banking functionality of the bank before using e-Taxpay platform.

FIRS advised taxpayers to always confirm that the information they provided are correct and valid before submitting the request.

After a successful transaction, the system will generate an e-acknowledgement,  which can be printed online, or sent to a specified e-mail address.

The ‘e-acknowledgement’ is a confirmation of the transaction of payment of tax to FIRS which would be presented to FIRS field office for the issuance of statutory FIRS receipt to the taxpayer.

The agency also advises taxpayer to ensure the ‘e-acknowledgement’ is submitted to the tax office of domicile to get a government tax receipt for the payment made. 

It assured the e-Taxpay service is safe and secure.

 “The e-Taxpay platform leverages on the security measures provided by the service channels of the banks in addition to that of NIBSS and FIRS,” FIRS said.
