The Nigerian Government has declared every Thursday “Tax Thursday”.

This is to create awareness among Nigerians on payment of tax and accrued benefits.

In the next one year, the programme will target at least four million new taxpayers from the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo made the declaration in Abuja on Thursday at the launching of the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme, VAIDS.
