WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE LAGOS STATE BOARD OF INTERNAL REVENUE
LIRS is the major revenue generating Agency of the Lagos State Government saddled with the responsibility of collecting taxes. Over the years LIRS has increased the State’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) by executing various pioneering programmes and implementing strategies which have impacted positively on revenue generation and collection, with the IGR moving from a monthly average of about 600 Million Naira in 1999 to approximately 17 Billion Naira in 2011, thereby making Lagos State less dependent on proceeds from the Federation Account.
To make tax assessment and payment convenient for tax payers, LIRS commenced the establishment of mini tax offices in markets in 2006 and to date 40 of such offices are in operation. Furthermore, in January 2008, LIRS introduced the Self Assessment Filing System for individuals, the first of its kind in Nigeria.
