Zamfara introduces e-payment of revenue

12 March 2013, 16:12

Gusau - The Zamfara Government has introduced the e-payment system to curtail sharp practices in revenue generation, the Chairman, Board of Internal Revenue, Mustapha Isa, said.

In a statement in Gusau on Tuesday, Isa also said that the government had ordered the immediate stoppage of payments through officials of the Internal Revenue Board.

He said that the measure was in tune with global practice of electronic monitoring transactions.

The chairman also said that the new system would assist the state to improve its internal revenue base to enable it service its development strategies.

Isa said, ``Henceforth all payments must be made via pay-direct platform in seven selected commercial banks.

``Tax payers should collect e-tickets from any of the selected banks where payment is made, which will serve as evidence of payment before issuance of e-receipts.''

He said that receipts would be issued to any tax payer on presentation of ticket within three days from the date of payment.

Isa further said that some federal establishments owed the state revenues to the tune of nearly N299 million from non-payment of outstanding PAYE taxes.

He said that legal actions would be taken against such organisations that failed to remit their outstanding PAYE taxes in line with the provisions of the tax law.
