The Plateau State Inland Revenue Service (PSIRS) will start taking revenue from all taxable adults, including native doctors, its chief, Darshe Arlat has said.
Arlat told Daily Trust, on Sunday that the service has engaged the services of a firm to commence the enumeration of all taxable adults through a bio-metric capturing, with a target to locate and tax them.
The revenue chief said the enumeration will target the informal sector, particularly artisans, commercial drivers and their conductors and peasants, as well as native doctors.
The enumeration will be carried out in the sectors of Commerce, Transport, Tourism, Agriculture, Health and Education; all aimed at harmonising revenue collection.
He said the target will erase double and multiple taxation in the state.
“By the time the service provider commences work around the state, we shall do away with multiple or double taxation, which have usually been the complaints of sizable number of tax payers,” he said.
He asked for the cooperation of artisans, but warned the consequences of default are dire.
He reminded defaulters of the existence of a special tribunal to try and fine them.
