"We believe that with the simplification of tax remittances through the deployment of TaxPro Max and the resultant efficiency, the Service is geared towards recording increased collection rates, which will further enhance government revenue and improve transparency in tax administration.

”The TaxPro Max is a home-grown solution developed by a staff of the FIRS. It was introduced as part of the Service's effort at modernising tax administration in Nigeria and for the ease of Tax compliance. This platform, among other features, enables seamless registration, filing, payment of taxes and automatic credit of withholding tax as well as other credits to the Taxpayer's account.

”TaxPro-Max also provides a single-view to Taxpayers for all transactions with the Service. It was fully deployed nationwide, effective 7th June 2021 as the channel for filing Naira-denominated tax returns.
