The Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service (KDIRS) has threatened to seal all banks operating in the state which failed to pay its communication mast and Signage fees as required by law.
Legal Adviser to KDIRS Francis Kozah told the Newsmen in Kaduna on Thursday that the defaulting banks were given two weeks to pay or be sealed.
Kozah explained that the Kaduna State Tax Codification and Consolidation Law 2016 provided that all bank branches operating in the state with communication mast and synergy were to pay certain fees.
He, however, said that with the exception of UBA, most of the banks have failed to pay, particularly for 2016 and 2017.
Kozah advised the banks, to in their own interest, settle the liabilities to avoid embarrassment.
He also said that 32 other people would soon be charged to court for tax evasion.
He advised taxpayers to pay their taxes, stressing that the board would prosecute any company or individual that failed to do so.
