The Acting Executive Chairman, Federal Capital Territory Internal Revenue Service (FCT-IRS), Mr. Haruna Abdullahi says the vision of the Service is to establish a world-class revenue collection system, through the creation of a single, unified platform and dashboard for tracking and monitoring generated revenues.

Abdullahi gave this assurance at the ongoing Stakeholders Resolution Retreat on the Harmonization of Revenue and Ease of Doing Business in the FCT held in Ondo state Capital, Akure.

He said the dashboard would enable the institution to effectively monitor all revenues generated, towards blocking leakages.

“Our goal is to ensure that all revenue in FCT is properly accounted for with the highest level of transparency and accuracy. This will help to build trust and confidence among the people and encourage them to support our revenue generation efforts. 

“We also aim to use technology to streamline our revenue collection processes, reduce inefficiencies, and improve service delivery to the people. Ultimately, we believe that by achieving our vision, we can create a vibrant and prosperous FCT, ” he stated.

According to him, the retreat is targeted at achieving a harmonized revenue collection system that is efficient, transparent, fair and promoting a business-friendly atmosphere in the FCT.

In her remarks, the Executive Secretary of the Joint Tax Board, Mrs. Nana-Aisha Obomeghie noted that FCT-IRS, since its inception had made its mark in the nation’s tax environment.

She expressed optimism that the barriers of multiplicity of tax-revenue collecting actors and entities, and double taxation would be addressed.
