The Ogun State Internal Revenue Service has launched a comprehensive enforcement campaign aimed at retrieving unpaid tax liabilities and bolstering government revenue from various income sources. Commencing on Tuesday, November 7, 2023, the enforcement drive targets the complete adherence to the payment of consumption taxes, withholding taxes, outstanding duty liabilities, and road taxes.
This development was communicated through an official statement endorsed by the Executive Chairman of OGIRS, Olugbenga Olaleye, from the Revenue Headquarters situated in Oke Mosan, Abeokuta. The objective of this exercise is to reclaim all unsettled tax dues owed to the State government, thereby significantly augmenting the financial reserves of the state.
Olaleye stressed that the enforcement initiative would extend across all three Senatorial Districts of the State. He urged all motorists to ensure that their road-related documents are current and encouraged tax defaulters to promptly settle all overdue tax obligations either through the Agency’s website or by visiting any of the tax stations dispersed throughout the state.
This enforcement campaign is aligned with OGIRS’s commitment to promoting financial accountability and fortifying the fiscal stability of the state. The agency appeals for collaboration from both citizens and businesses to facilitate a smooth and effective recovery process.
