The Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) has launched what it calls ” Integrated Tax Administration System” which is inclusive of online registration, filing and payment processes.
This, according to the LRA Boss Thomas Doe Nah, will replace the Standard Integrated Government Tax System (SIGTAS), currently being use by the Authority.
The project which is sponsored by the African Development Bank Group, The World Bank, SIDA and the European Union, seeks to improve tax compliance and increase tax revenue.
The aim is also to gather sustainable resources to support Liberia’s growth and development.
Speaking when he launched the project at the LRA Headquarters in Paynesville on Friday, Commissioner General Thomas Doe Nah, described the initiative as a major milestone to make tax payment easier and improve taxpayers’ experience.
The project supports the goals of the LRA in ensuring the transformation of revenue administration by utilizing effective information and communication technology he noted.
“The new idea is an addition to making the Authority becoming more effective” according to LRA Boss, stressing that it is aligning with international best practice.
The Head of the country’s revenue generating arm told the gathering that the Authority is taking steps that will shift the narrative for Liberia to achieve raising more revenue.
