Technology will play a pivotal role in improving the ease of paying taxes in Nigeria. The Partner/ West African Tax Leader, Deloitte Mr Yomi Olugbenro asserted this as the guest for the 46th edition of the WebTV "Economy and Politics" show which explored "Revisiting The Current Tax Measures In Nigeria".
Mr Yomi Olugbenro believed from the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS to the State Internal Revenue Boards, there must be concerted efforts to invest in digital technology and platforms, to ease the process of tax payments and collections in the country.
