Final Notes

The maiden stakeholder engagement was attended by 40 participants including Heads and Directors of Tax Administrations in Nigeria, researchers and other stakeholders. These include the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), FCT, Niger and Katsina Internal Revenue Services, ICTD, ACTG, and the Nigerian Governors forum. The event sent out a clear message of the need to raise awareness at the national level and sub–national level on the need for tax digitalisation. It was highly interactive and provided a good understanding of the Digitalisation of Tax Administration, and it received a very positive response and high appreciation from the participants. Some areas of research identified in the engagement include examining the digital transformation journey of tax administrations in Nigeria, identifying challenges and lessons from the experience of subnational tax administrations in digital transformation and a comparison of digital transformation efforts between Nigerian and other African countries.
