LIRS Extends Deadline For Filing Of Annual Tax Returns To February 7

In view of the recent downtime experienced on the e-tax portal, the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) has extended the filing of employers’ annual tax returns by 1 (one) week starting from February 1 to February 7, 2024.

Mr. Ayodele Subair, the Executive Chairman of LIRS, conveyed this in a public notice released by the agency on Tuesday.

Statutorily, the filing of annual tax returns by companies expires on January 31st of each fiscal year and attracts stiff penalties for defaulters. Taxpayers are hereby advised to take advantage of this extension to perform their civic obligation.

This extension is aimed at providing taxpayers with additional time to ensure accurate and timely submission of their annual tax returns.

Subair urged employers of labour to take full advantage of the extension to perform their civic obligation to avoid penalties and other statutory sanctions outlined in section 81(3) of the Personal Income Tax (Amendment) Act 2011.

“We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise, and this extension is intended to accommodate such instances.
