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

In a statement on Sunday, LIRS Executive Chairman, Mr Ayodele Subair said that the Agency is discontinuing all previously used bill references effective from 1 August 2022 as part of its digitisation process. 

As a result, only the Enterprise Tax Solutions (eTax) generated bill references would be acceptable for tax payments, Subair said.

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 the state.

The LIRS Chairman 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 1 August 2022, eTax would become the only authorised channel to generate bill reference for tax payments and other tax-related transactions in the state.

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

1. Visit https://etax.lirs.net

2. Input Payer ID and password to log in

3. Select revenue type, and upload schedule (For PAYE & Withholding Taxes)

4. Generate a bill reference

5. Make a payment on any of the multiple channels available, using the generated bill reference.


For further assistance on eTax or other related enquiries, taxpayers are enjoined to call LIRS customer service hotline on 0700 2255 5477 or send email to etaxinfo@lirs.net
