Lagos Government Sues AY And Davido Over Tax Evasion

The Lagos State Government has begun moves to tackle high-profile tax defaulters in the state and ensure high level of compliance with its tax laws. As part of this initiative, the state government has moved against some celebrities in the state, who are alleged to be tax evaders despite their earnings from their business.

Notable among these alleged tax offenders are two of Nigeria’s celebrated artistes –Davido and AY, the comedian. Davido, the Chief Executive Officer of HKN Music, Lagos, has been charged before a Lagos High Court and risk a jail term if convicted. AY has had a longer history in court against the state as he was charged to court since 2016 for failing to file his tax returns as required by law.

However, a source said Davido had defended his action, claiming that he paid taxes to Osun State since he is an indigene of the state. The source added, “Remember that Davido said he made N500m from his N30bn concert recently. We must know how much he paid to the LIRS. “AY too said the same thing. The comedian claimed to be paying his taxes to Ondo State, where he hails from. It seems these celebrities don’t understand that the tax law stipulates that you must pay your tax to your state of residence.

@Jeremiah: Ademolu: Hahahahaha. A.Y probably thinks he is cracking jokes in one of his AY LIVE SHOWS for saying that he pays his taxes in Ondo State

The tax system in not really working,the governments need to work on it, most especially those that earn such high income need to be made to pay since taxes are deducted from the salaries of low income earner .
