Mission Statement

To render value-added services to taxpayers and entrenching a sustainable system of tax administration and optimized revenue generation to be an efficient and effective revenue-generating agency providing continuous flow of IGR, to the state in line with international best practices for the sustenance of good governance.

Strategic Objectives Just as it was for the Vision and Mission, the KIRS did not also have any list of Strategic

Objectives. So the participants were led to develop and draft such strategic objectives from

the provisions of the enabling laws and the mandates. The following is the list of strategic

objectives aggregated.

  1. To collect all taxes and penalties due to the government under the relevant laws.
  2. To account for tax revenue generated for the state.
  3. To make appropriate recommendations to the JTB on tax matters.
  4. To implement all relevant tax laws that may be enacted.
  5. To provide a database of all taxable persons/ organizations for the state.
  6. To undertake tax payer education.

Because these Strategic Objectives were developed from the enabling laws, there was no

question of them not matching with the mandates of the Board.

Performance Review

The performance review of the functions of the departments was carried out by requesting that the participants make an informed assessment of the level of performance of the various functions. They were also led to suggest reasons for poor or no performance, as well as possible solutions.

Historical Background

The Kano State Revenue Administration Law, 2013, established a Board known as the Kano State Board of Internal Revenue whose operational arm is known as the Kano State Internal Revenue Service. This Law effectively replaced the Board of Internal Revenue which was established by the Personal Income Tax Act Cap.71 1972 Laws  as amended in 1976 (as was applicable to Kano State).
