Health Care

Better health is central to human happiness and well-being. It also makes an important contribution to economic progress, as healthy populations live longer, are more productive, and save more.

Tax Types

Kogi State Internal Revenue Service (KGIRS) defines tax compliance as obeying provisions of tax laws willingly, without being forced. It also means registering yourself, enterprise, non-governmental organization or a government agency with tax authority and also keeping proper records, preparing tax returns, filing and payment of taxes.

Tax Law

Reviews, amendments and modifications to tax legislations are continuous, evolving with global best practices and in keeping with the local socio-economic realities. The review and amendment of tax legislation is in keeping with the formal tax amendment process as provided for in the Nigerian constitution.

How to pay

Our payment process is simple and straight foward with a few steps. The tax type is calculated and paid at one of our collecting banks or on one of our online platforms with the correct revenue head for proper documentation. e-recipts and Tax Clearance Certificate can then be collected at the KGIRS head office.

Self Service

Self-service in our context, we have deployed Self-Service Technologies (SSTs) which are technological interfaces allowing taxpayers with the intention to make service transactions more accurate, convenient and faster. From self assessment, tax payment platforms, application forms and more.

Why Pay Tax?

Here Are A Few Reasons.

Free Education and Medicare:
The taxes that we pay are what enable the lesser privileged many to get a good education and healthcare that they cannot afford themselves. In fact the government is able to work out plans of free primary education or free health care for the under privileged only because of the income that it gains from tax payers.

PAY YOUR TAX AND LEVIES ONLINE

Our online payment channels are available to process ALL forms of tax and revenue payments to Kogi State Government.

If our collections become as large as the enormity of the natural and human resources we have in Kogi State, we will make a monument of the State’s growth. The need to widen and deepen our revenue collections is very paramount, and the unhindered collaboration of the Service with the several Ministries, Departments and Agencies in the State to penetrate the untapped revenue bases and to activate dormant revenue lines whilst we effect full automation of tax services in the State will transform the State into an economically independent community
