Lagos Internal Revenue Service (LIRS)


Lagos State Inland Revenue Service

For years, the revenue collected in the state by the revenue collection and administration agency of the Government of Lagos State was grossly disproportionate to the economic activities in the state, a development induced by low levels of tax education and, by extension, lack of public understanding of the relationship between taxation and development

Remediation of the situation was provided by Strategic Outcomes Limited -on behalf of the LIRS via what is widely regarded as the continent’s most elaborate taxpayer education campaign

The outcome was a jump in revenue collection from a monthly average of N3.6billion in 2006 to N20.5billion in 2015
