Plateau establishes court for tax defaulters
Plateau State has signed the long awaited Internal Revenue Harmonized law earlier passed by the state House of Assembly, noting that by coming into force tax payers have been relieved of the burden of multiple tax.
Addressing a press conference yesterday in Jos, Chairman of the state Internal Revenue Service (PSIRS), Mr. Dashe Arlat, said “a special court has been established by the state to prosecute those who still insist on evading tax in spite of the gesture from government.”
He said that with the law, “the state is set, and the path of progress made clear for the activation and sustenance of an effective, efficient and performance-driven tax administration system in the state, and in all local governments.
Together with the management and staff of PSIRS, we hereby pledge to fully operationalize and implement extant provisions of the new law, and to equally work hard and smart to deliver better revenue generation performance for the government and people of Plateau state.”
