A new online tax filing platform has been unveiled, the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), announced on Saturday.
The tax service said the new tax administration solution called TaxPro-Max was part of its efforts to modernize tax administration, for ease of tax compliance in the country.
The Chairman od FIRS, Muhammad Nami, said “TaxPro-Max” would enable seamless registration, filing, payment of taxes and automatic credit of withholding tax as well as other credits to the Taxpayer’s accounts, among other features.
The TaxPro-Max also provides a single-view to Taxpayers for all transactions with the Service”.
The TaxPro-Max platform is accessible at www.taxpromax.firs.gov.ng
Nami said effective June 7, 2021, the TaxPro-Max would become the channel for filing Naira-denominated tax returns” in the country.
Consequently, Nami notifies all Taxpayers that “all Naira-denominated tax returns are to be filed via the TaxPro-Max Solution in order to generate the obligatory Document Identity Number (DIN)”.
Henceforth, taxpayers will not be able to pay without DIN, as such taxpayers wanting to submit their tax returns manually must visit the relevant tax office where FIRS personnel will be on hand to assist them to upload the returns and generate the DIN.
“In view of the time it might take to upload manual returns and generate the DIN, taxpayers are encouraged to bring manual returns for upload, at least, two weeks before the due date; Qualified Personnel of the Service are on hand to assist taxpayers experiencing challenges in filing returns on the TaxPro-Max. They may be reached via email, [email protected]”.
Nami advised “taxpayers that are yet to get their user credentials to visit the nearest FIRS Tax Office to be on board immediately”.
