The Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) says it has extended the deadline for filing of annual returns for individual taxpayers, including self-employed persons, to May 31, 2020.

Ayodele Subair, LIRS chairman, said the extension is necessary in view of the coronavirus pandemic that has altered the socio-economic activities around the world.

The deadline for filing annual returns is March 31 of every fiscal year.

“The extension of the deadline of the annual returns is in response to appeals made by taxpayers as well as a policy shift by the agency to assuage the effect of COVID-19 on the taxpayers and residents of Lagos state,” Subair said in a statement.

”We implore the taxpayers to access our eTax platform for all tax operations and administration matters, including filing of annual returns from the comfort of their homes and offices.

”They can do this, by simply logging on to the eTax platform via https://etax.lirs.net or calling our customer care centre on 0700 CALL LIRS (070022555477).”

Subair appealed to the residents of Lagos state to support the efforts of the Lagos state government ably led by Babajide Sanwoolu by adhering strictly to the COVID-19 safety guidelines as issued by relevant health authorities.

Lagos has the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country.
