Babatunde Fowler says with the introduction of Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme (VAIDS), no Nigerian can evade tax payment.
Fowler said this at the 138 Quarterly Meeting of the Joint Tax Board (JTB) on Monday in Abuja.
He said that the so called “untouchable citizens’’ were willing to pay tax without forcing them under the scheme.
According to him, the board has received positive response so far on the scheme.
“From the point of FIRS, all the money generated is shared between the three tiers of government; the collaboration between states and FIRS is improving.”
“I hope the collaboration will continue to get better,’’ he said.
