‘We lose N100m yearly to tax defaulters’

 
Mon Nov 4th, 2019 - Katsina
 

The chairman of Katsina Board of Internal Revenue, Aminu Abdulmumini, at the weekend said the state was losing N100 million yearly to tax defaulters.

He noted that several wealthy persons were shortchanging government, with some dressing deceitfully like paupers whenever they go to pay their taxes.

Abdulmumini said action would soon be taken against known defaulters, as the board was compiling their names with a view to notifying them on the need to come clean with their tax payments.

He said after defaulters are notified, a follow up would be made and a legal action initiated in the case of recalcitrance.
