The Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has
been presented with his electronic Tax Clearance Certificate otherwise
known as, e-TCC.
This development followed the migration of Ondo State Internal
Revenue Service, ODIRS, from manual production of the document to an
electronic generation for taxpayers who have paid their taxes up-to-date
in three recent consecutive years.
Speaking at the presentation, the Executive Chairman, Ondo State
Internal Revenue Service, Mr Tolu Adegbie said the governor has
satisfied all the conditions attached to the generation of electronic
Tax Clearance Certificate.
According to the Chairman, Arakunrin Akeredolu had earlier complied
with the directive of the Federal Government through the Joint Tax Board
to register as a Taxpayer upon which a Tax Identification Number, TIN,
was generated for him and a TIN certificate presented to him.
Mr Adegbie also said that, Governor Akeredolu had equally paid
up-to-date the Land Use Charge on his landed property which qualified
him to have a Tax Clearance Certificate.
Responding the State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN,
expressed happiness that ODIRS has greatly moved Ondo State forward by
way of making tax processes stress-free.
While saying that the development should gladden the hearts of all
residents of Ondo State, Governor Akeredolu enjoined all the tax paying
public in the state to reciprocate the latest initiative by voluntary
coming up to pay their taxes.
