Churches And Mosques To Start Paying Taxes In Lagos

A bill that would review land use charge in Lagos state has gone through second reading on the floor of the state House of Assembly during plenary on Thursday, December 28. The law tagged:“A Bill for A Law To Repeal The Land Use Charge Law 2001 and Enact Land Use Charge 2017 and For Connected Purposes” was subsequently committed to the House Ad-hoc Committee
on Finance headed by Yinka Ogundimu representing Agege II, New Telegraph reports. .
Speaker of the House, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, said the law was all about increasing the revenue generation of the state.

He said that the House would not exempt religious organisations in the law “because most of the worship centres are making money.
“We could only exempt Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).”
Obasa observed that a situation where a few consultants were working with the state governments on the collection of land use charge was not good enough, calling for increase in the number of consultants.
He said: “We need more consultants to do the job so that the entire state could be covered in the collection of land use charge. Whatever tribunal that would be set up to deal with offenders should have the support of the government.

Religious houses ought not to be paying taxes because they are meant to cater for the needy and the helpless which many are doing even if not all.

Religious houses that have enterprises or any money making business should of course pay tax.
