INTRODUCTION  
1.1              STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM   
Tax is a compulsory levy, which a government imposes on the income of eligible citizen in a state of which the government makes no direct benefit on the taxpayer.
Revenue means the money government receives from tax. In this situation, tax evasion is a strong weapon, which fight against the revenue generation in our country. As we know that tax evasion is the deliberate attempt of a taxpayer not to pay tax while avoidance is refers to attempt of a taxpayer to reduce his tax liability in order to pay little as tax.
This action affects the generation of revenues in Nigeria. it makes the objectives of which tax is meant for not to be achieved. Despite all the efforts made by the government to prevent the problem of tax evasion and avoidance, there are still reduction in the development of growth in the economy. Also reduction in capital expenditure, recurrent expenditure economic growth, monopolistic problem and national debt.
As a result of this, my focus is to discover the causes of this problem in the economy. Again to find out the possible solutions to this ugly problem.
1.2              RATIONALE OF STUDY
Having seen the rate at which people evade and avoid tax, it is now necessary to know how this research will be useful to curtail this problem at hand. Another reason why the study is necessary now is to help the tax authorities map out the necessary strategies to collect taxes to avoid the issue of tax evasion and avoidance.  
Again, having seen that the revenue generation of our country depends mostly on tax and in the absence of that, the country will not be able to meet up with daily problems, so it is necessary to see a way out to avoid tax evasion and avoidance in order to reduce its effect on our revenue generation in the country
Set-backs on capital projects as a result of shortage of funds due to low income generation from tax and other sources is a problem to be addresses adequately. So, the problem of tax evasion and avoidance must adequately be traced, so that the country will increase her capital projects from funds generated from tax.
1.3              SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY  
Having seen the rate at which people evade and avoid tax and the subservient effect it brings in the revenue generation of the country, the researcher however has come out with some possible solutions to this problem in the economy. This entails that the research will serve as a possible solutions to the problems of tax evasion and avoidance in the society.
More still, tax authorities and officials will find this research rewarding as the research vividly pointed out the various forms of tax evasion and avoidance and also show the effects of such in the economy.
Finally, the research will be of great importance to further researchers on tax evasion and avoidance in the society.
