“Judgment day” is on the way for tax evaders who fail to take advantage of the amnesty provided by the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme to regularise their tax profiles.
Federal Government has said it would name, shame and prosecute such persons once the amnesty programme was over by March 31, 2018.
Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, who made this known at a VAIDS stakeholders’ symposium held in Kaduna State, said the Government would strictly adhere to the confidentiality clause in the Automatic Exchange of Financial Account Information in tax matters.
This, according to her, was in line with the guidelines of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.
