Lagos State government has issued the POS operators a notification letter relating to the payment of tax for their businesses in the state.
As seen in the notification letter below issued by the Alimosho Local Government Area of the state, to the Agbado/Oke-Odo located council development area, POS agents/operators will henceforth pay a mandatory levy of N10,000 annually to Trilling Volant Service.
The general notification letter which was dated Friday, August 14, mandated the money agents to pay a sum of N5000 for the year 2020, noting that the yearly calendar has passed halfway.
The letter, however, noted that payment of the N10, 000 mandatory levies will commence from the year 2021.
See below the notification letter as made available on Twitter by Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju.
Reacting to the N10,000 levy, Devil tweeted; “The Bullion Vans & Sons LTD wants to tax Lagosians to death. N10,000 for POS fee. Somebody must pay for their 2023 spending.”
Deji Adeyanju in his reaction alleged that former Lagos State Government, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his political sons, including the current governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu are unnecessarily taxing Lagosians to fund their 2023 election.
