The Joint Tax Board (JTB) has launched a new national registration system that would enable Nigerians to obtain their taxpayer identification number (TIN) online.
The new system launched in Abuja is also targeted at tracking all eligible taxpayers in the country. Launching the new platform, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo expressed hope it would go a long way in reforming Nigeria’s tax system while ensuring better service delivery for citizens. Tunde Fowler, JTB chairman, said the new system will provide a unique identity to the taxpayer and facilitate ease of compliance. He said its main objective is to leverage already captured data of eligible taxpayers by relevant government institutions to discover hidden trends and patterns that could lead to better visibility and revenue generation for the government.
