NULGE Wants Local Government To Collect VAT

The National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has said that the 744 local government councils should collect the Value Added Tax and not the Federal Inland Revenue Service or state governments.

The NULGE President, Akeem Olatunji, made this call on Sunday in an interview newsmen in Abuja.


Olatunji said VAT collection would impact the communities and people more positively if collected by the third tier of government.

He argued that VAT collection should be the responsibility of the local councils “since both companies and consumers reside within the LG areas.”
