In view of the challenges being experienced by businesses within the State arising from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) has extended the filing of Employers’ Annual Returns by an additional two weeks starting from February 1 to February 14, 2021.
According to law, the filing of company’s annual returns expires on January 31 of every fiscal year and attracts stiff penalties for defaulters. Tax Payers were therefore urged to take advantage of this extension to perform their civic obligation.
The extension of the deadline, according to the Executive Chairman of LIRS, Mr. Ayodele Subair, is also in response to appeals made by taxpayers as well as an attempt to assuage the effect of the pandemic on the taxpayers and residents of Lagos State.
Subair said: “We implore taxpayers with difficulties in filing of their annual returns to seek assistance with specially designated staff at our tax stations or call our Customer Care representatives on 0700 CALL LIRS (0700-2255-5477).
“Further updates on our business operations and alternative payment platforms of the service can be obtained by visiting the LIRS website (www.lirs.gov.ng), and its various social media platforms @lirsgovng.”
The management and staff appealed to residents of Lagos State to support the efforts of the Lagos State Government led by Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu by adhering strictly to the safety guidelines as issued by relevant health authorities.
