The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has taken its tax drive and enlightenment services to the 30th Enugu International Trade Fair, our correspondent reports. An Assistant Director of FIRS. Mrs Beatrice Obi told our correspondent that they were taking advantage of the event to sensitize participants on the need to discharge their civic duties.
Obi said that the platform was a veritable avenue to interface with private and corporate organizations and enterprises. She said that they also offered advice on the modalities for the registration of companies, adding that those finding it difficult to register their companies would receive useful information. The assistant director, Federal Engagement and Enlightenment Tax Team, said that though the FIRS also had the mandate to enforce tax payment, “we are not here for enforcement”. Obi said it was sad that the turnout of people for tax education had not been encouraging due to the limited number of exhibitors at the fair.
