The Joint Tax Board (JTB), at its 149th meeting, honoured the Lagos Internal Revenue Service and its Executive Chairman, Ayodele Subair, for their contributions towards the actualisation of the JTB’s vision.

Subair received the award at a gala night held at Victoria Island, Lagos, to mark the end of the two-day meeting hosted by the Lagos State Government and LIRS.

The 149th JTB meeting, held on December 13 to 14, at Eko Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, was part of the board’s mandate to meet quarterly to appraise performance and deliberate on tax issues.

In his acceptance, Subair thanked the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his vision and his support for the LIRS. He also thanked the LIRS staff, partners, and Lagosians in Lagos and asked them to pay their taxes voluntarily to avoid penalties.

Subair, who described the recognition as an opportunity to do more, said: “All tax authorities are making efforts to improve on the ease of doing business and simplification of tax administrative processes which will in turn significantly advance on the tax compliance levels within the country.”
