LIRS optimizes payment procedure on eTAX for taxpayers 

The Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) is currently optimizing its payment procedures for utmost efficiency and taxpayers’ convenience.

The Executive Chairman of the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service, Ayodele Subair, in a statement issued on Sunday by Monsurat Amasa, Head, Corporate Communications, LIRS, said the Agency, as part of its digitalization process, is discontinuing all previously used bill references effective from August 1st, 2022.

Consequently, according to the Chairman, only the Enterprise Tax Solutions (eTax), generated bill references will be acceptable for tax payments.

The eTax platform, (https://etax.lirs.net) which went live in October 2019, was launched by LIRS to engender seamless tax operations and reduce compliance costs to taxpayers. Since its launch, eTax has improved the effectiveness of tax administration in Lagos State.

Subair added that the eTax was built as a one-stop-shop for all tax transactions, and it is in the same spirit that the generation of bill references, required for all tax payments is now exclusive to the eTax platform.

He reiterated that by the cutoff date of August 1st, 2022, eTax would become the only authorized channel to generate bill references for tax payments and other tax-related transactions in Lagos State.

To generate a bill reference on e-Tax, taxpayers can use the 5 easy steps below:

  1. Visit https://etax.lirs.net
  1. Input your Payer ID and password to log in
  1. Select revenue type, and upload schedule (For PAYE & Withholding Taxes)
  1. Generate a bill reference
  1. Make a payment on any of the multiple channels available, using the generated bill reference.
