FIRS Threatens Bank Accounts Of Deceptive Taxpayers ― Nami

Executive Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Muhammad Nami, has warned that the agency may put a lien on bank accounts of defaulting taxpayers.
In a statement which he personally signed and released on Sunday, Nami also offered a 30-day window to enable taxpayers, obtain Tax Clearance Certificate.
In the statement titled Facilitating 2020 Tax Clearance Certificate (TCC) Issuance, Nami said the notice was issued to assist taxpayers to meet their obligations as they might need TCC.
He noted that the offer to ease issuance of TCC is in accordance with the provisions of Section 101 (1) of CITA LFN 2004 and in conformity with Self-Assessment Regulation, 2011.
He warned though that FIRS will not fail to invoke the provisions of the Law, including enforcement and imposition of lien should it be apparent that a taxpayer has misled the FIRS to issue a TCC.
