Introduction: In the world of corporate taxation, companies are often focused on reducing their tax liability through various strategies. One powerful tool in the Nigerian tax system is the use of tax credits. Tax credits are a form of incentive offered to businesses to encourage specific activities or behaviors. They provide a direct reduction in the amount of tax a company owes, making them a valuable asset in tax planning.
