Companies owing the Anambra State government premises and tax have had their establishment closed by the Anambra State Internal Revenue Service.

The closure was carried out by the AIRS enforcement team alongside some security personnel who visited the stores, companies and other business shops that received demand notices but failed to pay their business premises and tax.

The closed ventures, sealed with court order, were directed not to tamper with the seal pending the time they clear their debt; as non-compliance will attract legal action.

According to Dr David Nzekwu, the chairman of the Board, who addressed newsmen shortly after the exercise, he posited that it is the duty of Ndi-Anambra to pay tax since the funds generated are used to provide social amenities and other developments in the state.

Furthermore, he scowled at some company owners, who wait upon the Internal Revenue Service officials to force them before they pay. In addition, Dr. Nzekwu warned that hereafter any establishment that fails to comply will face the full weight of the law.

Mr. Chike Okosah, the Head of the Enforcement Team, bemoaned that majority of Ndi Anambra and others respond negatively to tax payment pointing out that they have enlightened the public to obey the law by following due process.

Conversely, Mr. Albert Ofomata, the Head of Assessment and Collection, noted that the indebted companies have to respond to the assessment given to them since the revenue generated are used for the advancement of Ndi Anambra.
