Ogun State Internal Revenue Service (OGRIS) said the state government’s monthly internally generated revenue (IGR), now hovers between N5 billion and N8 billion.
The agency chairman, Adekunle Adeosun, who made this known to newsmen in Abeokuta, said the figure represents a big jump from N800 million monthly IGR that the Amosun administration inherited in 2011.
He explained that, the largest percentage of the IGR is being realised from the personal income tax.
For instance, the IRS chairman said the agency succeeded in capturing 43 high networth individuals into the state’s tax net, raising their number from two to 45.
The agency, according to him, collects N500 million from the 45 high net worth taxpayers.Please subscribe to our newsletter
