Reminds Benue Tax Payers On Termination Of Tax Consultancies


BIRS Reminds Benue Tax Payers On Termination Of Tax Consultancies

We also wish to remind that BIRS also announced that Local Governments tax consultants/agents are an illegal arrangement based on the above decision.


The Benue State Internal Revenue Service (BIRS) hereby reminds the general public and tax payers in particular that BIRS had terminated all tax consultancies on the 2nd September, 2019 thereby relieving all tax agents collecting revenues on behalf of government of this responsibility.

We also wish to remind that BIRS also announced that Local Governments tax consultants/agents are an illegal arrangement based on the above decision.

However it has come to our notice that certain fraudulent companies have continued to parade themselves as tax consultants/agents to BIRS, thereby denying the state of revenue while impoverishing our loyal tax payers.

We hereby state categorically that:

BIRS has not re-engaged any Tax agent.


All revenue collections should be paid to bona fide staff of BIRS only.


All payments MUST be via Point Of Sales (POS) machines ordesignated commercial banks only.


On no account should any tax payer accept company receipts or pay into any company Bank accounts as they are illegal.


Any tax agency agreement entered into by any Local Government and a private company is illegal.


Andrew Ayabam
Executive Chairman
