Ambode Directs Payment Of Taxes Through Banks From March
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Monday directed that all taxes and levies due to the state government should now be paid through the banks and online banking platforms from March 1.
Ambode gave the directive shortly after paying his personal Land Use Charge at the Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) in Opebi area of Ikeja.
He said that this would reduce fraud and also encourage people to embrace the cashless policy.
“In order to ensure that government improves on quality of service to the people, effective from March 1, no payment of taxes will be made by cash anymore across the state.
“Tax payers should be able to pay every legitimate bills through all payment channels at their convenience.
“The transaction process is going to be every day, anytime, and do not pay into wrong hands anymore,” Ambode said.
