As a Governor who come prepared and has hit the ground running on his first day, he has started marching words with action.
Governor Chukwuma Soludo, in fulfillment of his campaign promise has introduced the digital tax collection system for the informal sector across the state inciuding: transport and market unions. The new method of revenue collections will enable accountability and transparency.
The new Anambra digital tax collection system which is billed to kickstart today, being Friday, July 1, 2022 across the state is aimed at ending multiple taxation, extortion, non-remittance of funds accrued to government treasury, illegal revenue checkpoints, harrassment of transporters, traders and buyers, and intimidation of citizens.
This is coming at a time ndi-Anambra are demanding for clean air, greener and secured environment, good roads, sustainable waste management, coconut and palm oil economy, technology hubs, quality education and health services, relaxtion centre and equipped fire service system across the state.
To provide the above basic amenities and other infrastructures for the residents, it became necessary for Soludo’s government to block all tax leakages inorder to ramp-up accrued revenues. As the revenue collecton has been digitized, it is worthy to note that Ministries, Departments and Agencies have been banned from collecting revenues for the government, hence making it a sole responsibility of Anambra State Internal Revenue Service -AiRS to collect revenues for and on behalf of the government.
It is evidently clear that this is a government that has the will to perform and is ready to outperform his agenda for ndi-Anambra on a record time, therefore, citizens and all residents are advised to support this initiative for a Liveable and prosperous homeland.
