FG reconstitutes Tax Appeal Tribunals + Membership list

The reconstitution of the Tribunals is in accordance with Section 2(1) of the Fifth Schedule of the Federal Inland Revenue Service Establishment Act

The Federal Government has reconstituted the Tax Appeal Tribunals in the six geopolitical zones as well as Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory.
The reconstitution of the Tribunals is in accordance with Section 2(1) of the Fifth Schedule of the Federal Inland Revenue Service Establishment Act.
The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, who announced this on Thursday in Abuja, said the Tribunals would adjudicate over disputes arising from the operation of Federal Tax Laws and Regulations in the country.
Adeosun said: “The reconstitution of the Tax Appeal Tribunals is an essential part of building tax payers trust and confidence in the fairness of the system.
“The Federal Ministry of Finance has undertaken a rigorous process to select competent persons on the basis of merit who will be expected to discharge their duties professionally.”
She added that the Ministry sought nominations from a number of professional bodies and stakeholders, including the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, Association of National Accountants of Nigeria, Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria, Nigeria Bar Association and the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Mines and Agriculture.
The Tax Appeal Commissioners, according to Adeosun, are expected to hold office for a term of three years from the date of appointment.
Each Tribunal is made up of a Chairman and four Commissioners knowledgeable in the laws, regulations, norms and practices of taxation in Nigeria, management and trade.
