 “Collection Of VAT By FIRS Remains” -FG

The Federal Government says the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) will continue to collect Value Added Tax (VAT) following the ruling of the Court Of Appeal on the matter.

The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, told newsmen in New York while speaking on the disagreement over the collection of VAT between FIRS and Rivers State government.

The Chief Law Officer of the Federation explained that the ruling of the Court of Appeal that FIRS and the Rivers State government maintained status quo, favored the FIRS.

He said that it was the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) that had been collecting the VAT before the dispute arose, over which the Rivers State government approached the High Court.
