The Federal Government, through the Executive Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, Tunde Fowler, on Monday, November 28, indicated plans aimed at restricting Nigerians from obtaining their passports, except for those who pay their taxes regularly.
Fowler, who made this known ‎at the 136th meeting of the Joint Tax Board, JTB, with the theme: “Increased Inter-Agency Co-operation to Enhance Tax Compliance and Optimise Revenue Collection”, in Abuja, said‎, “We did take a position, and I believe it would be implemented in the very near future, that before you get any services from the immigration department: renewal of passports, etc, you would have to show that you are a tax payer.‎
“These things are normal all over the world, in an effort to serve Nigerians, and Nigeria better.
“People believe that payment of tax is a burden, and I will repeat that you only pay tax on income and profits.
“So, if you reside in Nigeria, and you are benefiting from being a Nigerian resident, it is only fair that you contribute to the system that makes you enjoy that standard of living,” the FIR Boss said.


According to Fowler, the FIRS, has set a ‎target to increase the individual taxpayer data base by 10 million, by December 31, 2016.
He said, ‎“I’m glad with our co-operation; we have been able to attain 30 percent of that.
“We have been able to get three million individual taxpayers across the nation.
“I would like to congratulate Kano State, for leading the pack, by increasing the database by 944,000, followed by Lagos with 306,000, then Kaduna, and Plateau, Fowler said.
Meanwhile, the Corp Marshall of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, who was also at the meeting, lamented that the FRSC was being owed N700 million, for number plates production.
He ‎decried the high rate of fake documentation at ports, saying: “if we can strengthen inter-agency collaboration, we will get more results, now that the focus is on IGR.”
The event assembled together all States internal revenue Service Chairmen, and the bosses of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, and the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS.
