The chairman of the board, Dr David Nzekwu, who disclosed this to newsmen in Awka, said it had procured black Maria vans and about 21 lawyers in readiness for defaulters.

He said the era of tax evasion was over, assuring that every leakage and loophole would be closed to guarantee that all revenues go direct into government coffers.

He further revealed plans to introduce a new regime of revenue collection next year to realise N36bn as approximated in the 2021 fiscal budget.

He said, “The revenue service has procured three Black Maria vans which would be used to apprehend tax defaulters in custody.

“The Governor, Willie Obiano has approved the recruitment of 21 lawyers for the Board of Internal Revenue and in 2021 the agency would prosecute a lot of revenue fraudsters in the state.

“The governor has also certified the setting up of revenue enforcement department; all the human and material resources within its disposal will be deployed to work in 2021.

He said out of about 1.2 million people trading in the state only about 7,450 paid taxes.

Nzekwe added, “As we go into 2021, we will no longer accept a situation where an individual that ought to pay tax will not pay their taxes.
