ALGON sets up task force to check mul­ti­ple tax­a­tion

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

The As­so­ci­a­tion of Lo­cal Govern­ments of Nige­ria (ALGON) has set up a spe­cial task force to check mul­ti­ple tax­a­tion in all lo­cal govern­ments in the coun­try.

The Chair­man of the task force and ALGON Chair­man of Kogi State, Dr. Tau­fiq Isa, dis­closed this at the maiden meet­ing of the task force in Abuja where rep­re­sen­ta­tives from most of the states were in at­ten­dance.

Dr. Isa said the task force was a ma­jor strat­egy by ALGON to check the menace of mul­ti­ple tax col­lec­tion in all the sec­tors of the econ­omy.

He said the task force was go­ing to is­sue a uni­fied re­ceipt for ev­ery sec­tor so as to check the bad prac­tice so that money re­alised from tax­a­tion would be ac­counted for and put to good use for all Nige­ri­ans.

He added that the de­ci­sion of the task force was backed by a leg­is­la­tion from the Na­tional Assem­bly, and added that ALGON would li­aise with a bank to is­sue one type of re­ceipt for each sec­tor which would be used across the coun­try.
