Tax Identification Number

The Joint Tax Board (JTB), in collaboration with the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) and the 36 State Boards of Internal Revenue (SBIRs) has identified the automation of tax registration activities in Nigeria and eradication of double/multiple taxation as some of the key benefits of the new electronic system of Taxpayer registration initiative called Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). Nigerians from all walks of life at both individual and corporate levels have been urged to go to their nearest Tax office and collect their Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) immediately and start enjoying the privileges of having the TIN.



The TIN will bring Nigeria’s tax administration and practice in line with global best practice; enhance taxpayer identification and registration; minimize leakages in tax collection; facilitate information sharing between various tiers of Government; create a more conducive environment for investors and ultimately inspire greater confidence in Nigeria’s taxation syste.
