The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) will offer free advisory services to taxpayers who are ready to comply with the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme (VAIDS).
FIRS Executive Chairman, Mr. Tunde Fowler, made the promise at a media workshop on VAIDS in Lagos.


 
He said FIRS would help prospective declarers with documentation and advice whenever the organisation was approached.
Fowler noted that N17b had been realised from the scheme in six months and was expected to rake in an additional N6bn before the end of the year.
He urged those who had earned undeclared incomes to take advantage of the window provided by VAIDS to regularise their tax status.
The workshop featured presentations by tax experts on the role of data in taxation, tax amnesty programmes in other countries and the provision of VAIDS.

The candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the Anambra Central senatorial re-run scheduled for January 13, 2018, Chief Victor Umeh, yesterday, picked holes in the judgement of an Abuja High Court  which ordered that a certificate of return be given to Chief Obiora Okonkwo. 
He said Okonkwo could not reap from where he did not sow, adding that there was no certificate to issue as an appeal court sitting in Abuja had ordered the withdrawal of that certificate. 
Addressing a crowd during his campaign flag off at Ekwueme square, Awka, Umeh assured that the election would be conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as scheduled.
He described the action of Obiora as nothing less than “targeting to kill the ‘War General so as to cripple the opponent”.
“The Supreme Court had earlier upheld the appeal court judgement which earlier held that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not have valid party primaries and barred the party from fielding a candidate in the rerun of senatorial election,” he said.
The rally, graced by the state governor, Willie Obiano, and Dim Emelia Odumegwu Ojukwu, Amb. Bianca Ojukwu, Abia governorship candidate of APGA, Alex Oti, and other stalwarts, witnessed the decamping of Anayo Nnebe, a member of the House of Representatives, and Yul Edochi, the DPC gubernatorial  candidate to APGA.
