As part of its efforts at modernizing tax administration in the country, the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), has introduced a new Tax Administration Solution (TaxPro-Max) for ease of tax compliance.
A Public Notice signed by the Executive Chairman of FIRS, Muhammad Nami, said that TaxPro-Max would enable seamless registration, filling, payment of taxes and automatic credit of withholding tax as well as other credits to the Taxpayer’s accounts, among other features.
The notice said that the TaxPro-Max would also provide a single-view to Taxpayers for all transactions with the Service.
“The TaxPro-Max platform is accessible at www.taxpromax.firs.gov.ng”
Nami said that as from June 7, the TaxPro-Max would become the channel for filing Naira-denominated tax returns in the country.
Nami asked that all Naira-denominated tax returns should be filed via the TaxPro-Max Solution in order to generate the obligatory Document Identity Number (DIN).
“Taxpayers will not be able to pay without DIN; as such taxpayers wanting to submit their tax returns manually must visit the relevant tax office where FIRS personnel will be on hand to assist them to upload the returns and generate the DIN.
“In view of the time it might take to upload manual returns and generate the DIN, taxpayers are encouraged to bring manual returns for upload, at least, two weeks before the due date; Qualified Personnel of the Service are on hand to assist taxpayers experiencing challenges in filing returns on the TaxPro-Max. They may be reached via email, email@example.com.”
Nami advised taxpayers that are yet to get their user credentials to visit the nearest FIRS Tax Office to be on board immediately.
