The Enugu State Government says its Internal Generated Revenue in 2017 increased significantly to 20 billion naira as against 14billion naira generated in 2016.

According to the chairman of the Enugu State Internal Revenue Board, Emeka Odo said the success was recorded due to various reforms introduced to block revenue leakages and make tax payment easy for individuals and organizations through an Integrated Tax Management System.

Asides sealing of banks and other institutions for non-remittance of tax, the board in 2017 set up a revenue court and an Revenue Automation Project which included issuance of the Enugu State Social Benefit Number (ESBN), enumeration, assessment, collections and issuance of tax clearance certificates amongst others thereby dissolving the manual collection system to align with the current realities in the sector.

The board, however, called on relevant bodies to pay tax so as to fund the 98.5 billion naira 2018 budget.
