The extension of this deadline is contained in a press release issued by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), and signed by the tax authority’s Executive Chairman, Muhammad Nami, where it noted that it had taken this decision after receiving “numerous calls from companies for the extension of time to submit the Companies Income Tax (CIT) returns for 2022 year of assessment falling due on 30th June 2022.”

The Executive Chairman of the agency, Ayodele Subair made this known recently at the LIRS headquarters, Alausa, Ikeja, advising all individual taxpayers, including self-employed persons and employees under the PAYE Scheme in the State to take advantage of the remaining days in March to file their annual tax returns to avoid payment of penalties, as well as other statutory sanctions, which may include prosecution.
