Kwara State Government in Nigeria has concluded arrangements to introduce Electronic Tax Receipt, in an effort to boost the State Internally Generated Revenue.
The effort would help to checkmate tax invasion and fraud. Already, the state has improved tremendously on its internally generated revenue of N74 million, inherited from the immediate past government to over N160 million monthly. The new system would carry all the details and could be viewed on the state's website. There will be no duplication of receipts by unauthorised people, and the system will also ensure that there is no loss of revenue. The receipt will be coded and can only be used by authorised officials of the government.
