TAX ADMINISTRATION AND REVENUE GENERATION IN EDO STATE
ABSTRACT
Taxation plays a crucial role in promoting economic activity and growth. A critical challenge before tax administration in the 21st century Nigeria is to advance the frontiers of professionalism. The study is to examine the need for tax-payers’ enlightenment, verifying if there is a relationship between tax administration and economy development.
In an attempt to do this, a field survey was conducted among two hundred and seven(207) Edo State Board of Internal Revenue employees and businesses located around Egor Local Government Area in Edo and questionnaires were used to analyze the data and the hypotheses were tested using the Chi Square (x2).
The study revealed that: there is a relationship between tax enlightenment, economy development and tax administration in Edo State; and some of the challenges of tax administrators in Edo State are: low wages and salaries received by tax administrators, inadequate staff and working facilities and the method of keeping records and assessing tax rate.
It was in this view that the study recommended that: the tax administrators should create an enlightenment programme for tax payers, salaries paid to the tax administrator should be reviewed, the number of staff administrators sent to the field should be increased and the quality of materials used in keeping records and assessing tax rate should be modernized.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1    BACKGOUND OF THE STUDY
Taxation plays a crucial role in promoting economic activity and growth. Through taxation, government ensures that resources are channeled towards important projects in the society, while giving succor to the weak. Unfortunately, in today’s Nigeria, the economic development is nothing to write home about. The role of taxation in promoting economic activity and growth is not felt primarily because of its poor administration. According to Olashore (1999), the economy has remained in a deep slumber: all macroeconomic indicators show an economy in dire need of rejuvenation, reflection and indeed radical reform. Also in the view of Oni (1998), tax administration needs to be revamped while refunds of taxes as well as duty drawbacks administration are inefficient.
A critical challenge before tax administration in the 21st century Nigeria is to advance the frontiers of professionalism, accountability and awareness of the general public on the imperatives and benefits of taxation in our personal and business lives which include: promoting economic activity, facilitating savings and investment, and generating strategic competitive advantage. If tax administration does not for any reason meet the above challenged, then there is a desperate need for reform in the area of tax regime we run, and in the administration of taxes.
Income tax was first introduced in Nigeria in 1904 by late Lord Lugard. The introduction of Native Revenue ordinance of 1927 was most difficult in the Eastern areas of the country, due mainly to absence of recognized central authority, resistance of this form of direct taxation in such that it result to riots notably in Calabar, Owerri and the famous Aba women riot of 1929 which was so severe that it attracted a probe, beside the native Revenue Ordinance were also Native Direct Taxation Ordinance for the colony and the Native income Tax Ordinance. These ordinance were later modified and incorporated into the Direct Taxation Ordinance No 29 of 1940, cap 54 and the income tax ordinance No 29 of 1943 respectively.
The direct taxation ordinance 1940 empowered native authorities to tax Africans in their areas of jurisdiction while the income tax ordinance 1943 was for the taxation of non-Africans in companies. The two ordinances were the foundation of our modern taxation which necessitated establishment of board of internal revenue in each of the state of the federation.
