The Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS boss, Babatunde Fowler had already told tax evaders that there would be no hiding place for them.

Now, he is backing his words with action by partnering with anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The two agencies have now pledged to strengthen their collaboration to track both individuals and organisations who refuse to pay their fair share of the taxes.

Already, their partnership, according to a statement by the Head, Communications and Servicom Department, FIRS, Wahab Gbadamosi, has led to the recovery of 29 billion naira Withholding Tax from banks and other financial institutions in the country between November 2017 and March 2018.

The partnership, the statement noted, would beam searchlights on defaulting taxpayers who also refused to embrace the Federal Government’s tax amnesty programme to offset their tax liabilities.

At a meeting on Tuesday during a courtesy visit to the EFCC in Abuja, the FIRS boss, Babatunde Fowler, said Nigeria, just like other countries across the world, was looking inwards to lift the economy and would not tolerate tax defaulters.
