A Biometric enumeration of all business premises within Karu local government area of Nasarawa state is to commence next week.
This is to identify each and every business owner to register with the Karu local government internal revenue central system for easy payment of taxes in the area.
Chairman of Karu local government council Mr Akala Samuel Gajere announced this at a town hall meeting in Karu.
According to Gajere, the initiative to engage consultant in the collection of taxes would reduce revenue leakages, multiple taxation and fraudulent activities by staff.
He promised that the new method would bring sanity and ensure transparency in revenue collection in the area.
The Karu local government chairman explained that the more revenue collected the more provision of basic amenities like roads and portable water.
Some business owners at the meeting commended the initiative and expressed hope that authorities of the council would match words with action in using the revenue judiciously.
