Kano to re-in­tro­duce property tax

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ab­dulka­dir Bad­sha Mukhtar, Kano

Land own­ers and land­lords whose property have been num­bered and reg­is­tered would start pay­ing taxes af­ter they col­lect their cer­tifi­cates, Kano State govern­ment has said.

Gover­nor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso said this when he re­ceived the Law Of­fi­cers As­so­ci­a­tion of Nigeria, Kano branch, on Wed­nes­day.

“Very soon all the houses that are num­bered will start pay­ing an­nual taxes. I be­lieve that such will in­crease the value of the property,” he said.

The gover­nor, who called on own­ers of un­com­pleted build­ings to com­plete their projects and on land own­ers to de­velop their property, said such will help to tackle in­se­cu­rity.
