LIRS Extends The Deadline For Filing 2018 PAYE Returns


Thursday, January 31, 2019 11:51 AM / KPMG


The Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) has extended the statutory deadline for employers to file their annual Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE) tax returns by six working days from 31 January 2019 to Friday 8 February 2019. 

The extension became necessary to accommodate the significantly high number of taxpayers who are yet to file their PAYE tax returns through the designated online channel due to glitches on the platform.  The LIRS also announced that, with effect from Monday 4 February 2019, it will establish an alternative platform for taxpayers who have high volume of tax returns to file. 

Employers who are yet to file their PAYE tax returns to the LIRS should, therefore, take advantage of the extended window to comply, and promptly escalate any further teething problem with the e-filing platform to the LIRS.
