ANAMBRA has commenced closure of businesses that still owe their internally generated revenues (IGR).

  The enforcement is being carried out with court order by Anambra Internal Revenue Service (AIRS) that close indebted stores, companies and shops that received demand notices but failed to pay their business premises and tax. The enforcement team was accompanied by security agents.

  Speaking to newsmen shortly after the exercise, Chairman of AIRS, David Nzekwu described tax payment as the responsibility of all, and explained that generated funds are used to provide social amenities.

  Nzekwu frowned at business owners who wait until AIRS officials storm their premises to force them before they pay.

  According to him, henceforth any company that fails to comply will face the full weight of the law.

  Head of the Enforcement Team, Chike Okosah, lamented that majority of ndi Anambra and others react negatively to tax payment pointing out that they have enlightened the public to obey the law by following due process.

  On his part, Head of Assessment and Collection, Albert Ofomata said the indebted companies have to respond to the assessment given to them since revenue generated are used for the betterment of ndi Anambra.
