FIRS Will Continue to Collect VAT in Rivers, Lagos states

The VAT Battle In Rivers State, Nigeria - Tekedia

Rivers State and Lagos state fall on their efforts  to convince the Court of Appeal in Abuja to stop the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) from further collecting Value Added Tax (VAT), Premium Times reports. This is a generation-shaping case and it is just starting.

Refusing to grant the requests, a three-man panel of the court, led by Haruna Tsanami, directed the lawyers representing the two states to file formal applications instead of oral applications. The FIRS had appealed the judgement of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt empowering the Rivers State government to collect VAT.
