FCT-IRS extends Filing of Annual Returns

Following the hitches experienced by taxpayers in the last few days due to Server failure, the Management of Federal Capital Territory Internal Revenue Service (FCT-IRS) has extended the filing of annual returns to March 31, 2022 for organisations or agents.

The deadline for the filing of annual returns for the employers, agents or organisations was due on January 31 but the extension was necessitated because of the technical challenges.

The management however apologises to its esteemed taxpayers for the difficulty and challenges experienced in the process of payment and other services via the online channels in the past few days due to an unexpected downtime on its server.

FCT-IRS deeply regrets the inconveniences that might have caused them.

The Service is committed to them, its valued taxpayers, and will continue to work hard to improve abilities to serve them better.

The management is pleased to inform the taxpayers that the issue has been resolved and they can now make payment with ease.
