PROJECT TOPIC  : TAX ADMINISTRATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY NIGERIA: THE CRITICAL CHALLENGES

PROJECT PROPOSAL

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Within the last decade or so, the issue of domestic resource mobilisation has attracted considerable attention in many developing countries. In the face of unabating debt difficulties, coupled with the domestic and external financial imbalances confronting them, it is not surprising that many developing nations have been forced to adopt stabilisation and adjustment policies which demand better and more efficient methods of mobilising domestic financial resources with the view to achieving financial stability and promoting economic growth (Kiabel and Nwokah, 2009).

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 succour 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, reflation 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 challenges, then there is a desperate need for reform in the area of the tax regime we run, and in the administration of taxes.
