The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS), Kwara State chapter, ably represented by 12 esteemed representatives paid a visit to Kwara State Internal Revenue Service (KW-IRS) Head Office on the 31st of October, 2019 to express their gratitude towards the Service for its continual support. Also present at the event is the Director General, Bureau of Lands, Ibrahim Salman and his subordinate Alaya Kehinde
The president of the association, Dr. Rahaman Adetunji Lateef hinted that having the backing of Kwara State Internal Revenue Service in hosting the 2018 summit for educators in Nigeria was quite helpful as it has put a spotlight on the association. He delightfully noted that since the event, they have received several awards.
Dr. Lateef, while congratulating the new KW-IRS Executive Chairman, Mrs. Shade Omoniyi prayed for God’s guidance and success in the course of her administration. He also assured her of the association’s commitment to ensuring its members’ compliance to tax laws. He however, solicited for streamlined and structured methods of taxation which would make it easier for private schools to pay their tax dues. This culminated in a brainstorming session when both parties deliberated on modalities and strategies of tax collection that would help maximize revenue generation in the Kwara State.
Mrs. Omoniyi, in her reaction to the NAPPS president’s speech, appreciated the association for taking into cognizance the importance of remitting taxes and acknowledging the benefits they have previously enjoined from the Service. She provided thorough clarifications on issues raised by the president and brought the association up to date on new trends in tax administration.
The Executive Chairman decried unlawful collections of levies by certain bodies and enlightened the guests on the updated automated citizenship application system. She emphasized that the purpose of the new method of allowing people to pay their PIT via the KW-IRS Citizenship Registration platform was to block all leakages and make the payment process convenient for applicants.
In her closing remarks, Mrs. Omoniyi pointed out that collaborative efforts were integral to the effectiveness of the government. She therefore charged the association to remain steadfast in their cooperation with Kwara State Internal Revenue Service.
