CRSGH Story | 24th May, 2020




PRESS RELEASE

ILLEGAL COLLECTIONS OF TAXES, DUES, LEVIES, REVENUES AND TOLLS


It has come to the notice of the Anti-Tax Agency that in spite of His Excellency, Senator (Prof.) Ben Ayade's directives to end illegal taxation in Cross River State, some proscribed Agencies, Unions, LGA revenue Staff, individuals and tax consultants have taken it upon themselves to continually extort from innocent citizens.

This not acceptable even after the Governor had issued several warnings to the perpetrators to desist from such inhuman act of extorting their hard-earned money. Beaides, such act is against the Cross River State Tax Exemption Laws.

The Agency, however, frowns at such flagrant abuse of laws and directive, warning that those still engaged in illegal collections of taxes, dues, levies,tolls and revenues from Keke-Napep, Taxi Drivers, Hawkers, market women, shop owners and Small Scale Businesses shall be prosecuted  by the law if caught.

The Agency warns that henceforth, anybody caught in this illegal business shall be handed over to law enforcement officers for immediate prosecution. 

 Please in the event of a breach of this directives, kindly call this Emergency number: 07026105177

Signed:

Bishop Emmah Isong
Chairman,
Cross River State Anti-Tax Agency. .
