A coalition of States Internally Generated Revenue Services across the 36 states of the federation has launched a fresh investigation into how the Federal Government is remitting the Pay As You Earn fund into their individual state coffers.
The Executive Chairman, Plateau State Internal Revenue Service, Dashe Arlat Dasogot, disclosed this in an interview with journalists in Jos on Wednesday
Dasogot said that the probe followed revelations by states about how they had been experiencing a shortfall from their own share of the PAYE remittances from the federal government in the past months.
The chairman said “We held a meeting and the concern of all states generally borders on the continuous shortfall of their PAYE remittances from the Federal Government. Like in the case of Plateau, we used to share about N300 million as PAYE remittance to the state every month but what we have been getting in the past months, especially this year has been hovering between 180 million and N220 million.
