The National Economic Council has been informed of the list of 500 tax dodgers made up of some prominent citizens with investments abroad.

Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, explained that such Nigerians can take advantage of the Voluntary Assets & Income Declaration Scheme (VAIDS) to settle past taxation defaults.

“Letters would soon be going out to these Nigerians, including a number of prominent ones, asking them to take advantage of the tax amnesty in order to avoid prosecution and fines by simply paying up their tax defaults,” she said.

Of the 14 million, more than 95% were salary earners in the formal sector, but only 241 people paid personal income taxes amounting to about $65,500 (£50,000) in 2016, Ms Adeosun said.
