The Osun Internal Revenue Service (OIRS) said it has been able to force some private organisations to comply with the existing tax laws through collaboration and engagement with taxpayers of different categories.
The chairman of the Agency, Mr Bicci Alli made the disclosure while speaking with newsmen at a forum in Osogbo, saying, part of the efforts made by the Agency was the enforcement with close monitoring of remittances.
According to him, the employment of Revenue Marshals who usually meet taxpayers to collect revenue through Point of Sales (POS) terminal monetary mechanism had help to capture tax defaulters across the state.
He hinted that there has been close monitoring of the revenue collectors to ensure that the revenues are not diverted.
Commending the staff of the Agency for their commitment to duties, he disclosed that the revenue collectors were being taking through regular trainings at local and national level to ensure that the purpose of their employment which is to increase the revenue of the state is served.
He then charged taxpayers to always request and collect receipts from the revenue marshal for any payment they made as their proof of payment.
