The Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) has established January 31, 2022, as the deadline for the filing of annual tax returns by employers of labour.
The LIRS said that the filing of the annual income tax returns in the state can only be done through the e-Tax portal, which has been built for the convenience of the taxpayers.
According to a press statement issued and signed by the Head, Corporate Communications of LIRS, Monsurat Amasa, this was made known by the Executive Chairman of LIRS, Ayodele Subair, who urged employers of Lagos residents to comply with the January 31 deadline to avoid payment of penalties as well as other statutory sanctions.

The Act stipulates January 31st as the deadline for filing of annual income tax returns, failing which penalty accrues.
